94 Points Robert Parker

The 2005 The Octavius is a 100% Shiraz cuvee sourced from Eden Valley and Barossa vineyards ranging in age from 70-100 years. It was aged in 55% new French and American oak hogsheads and barriques. Purple-colored, it offers up a classy nose of wood smoke, pencil lead, smoked meat, game, blueberry, and blackberry. On the palate notes of plums, coffee, and anise also make an appearance. Opulent, savory, and concentrated, it has 6-8 years of aging potential and should be at its finest from 2015 to 2035.

96 Points James Halliday

Impenetrable colour; the concentration of old vine material is without question, and the array of dark fruit is beautifully framed by the oak; essency on the palate with generous levels of fruit simply swallowing the new oak; dark, tarry, earthy and very complex on the finish, the wine is massively proportioned, but superbly put together. Drink to 2035.
