96 Points Robert Parker
Deep purple-black colored, the 2009 Amon-Ra has pronounced creme de cassis and blueberry tart aromas over notes of raw meat, fertile loam, yeast extract and cloves. More elegant in the mouth, it has a medium to firm level of very fine tannins, vibrant and fresh acid that lingers nicely through a long and fruity finish. It is approachable now and will cellar to 2025+.

96 Points James Halliday
Has the usual dense purple-crimson colour; there is an elusive Arabian/exotic spice nuance to the bouquet, the palate proclaiming the exceptional quality of the fruit and the mastery of Ben Glaetzer, able to invest this shiraz with so much dark berry flavour yet retain elegance. A beautiful wine. Drink to 2030.
