90 Points Robert Parker
The 2007 The Footbolt Shiraz which spent 20 months in French and American oak offers fragrant aromas of wood smoke, game, and blueberry. Layered and balanced, it will evolve for several years and drink well through 2019.

89 Points James Halliday
Holding hue well; a very honest wine on both bouquet and palate, with black and red fruits plus tannins; dips slightly on the back-palate. Drink to 2016.
