93 Points Robert Parker
Grant Burge’s 2005 Meshach Shiraz casts a very deep garnet color and has an evolving nose of mulberries, dried cherries, tobacco, espresso, dried leaves and spices. The opulently fruited, full bodied palate provides layers of clove, cumin and cinnamon flavors amongst the dried fruits with high acid and firm chewy tannins to support, finishing long. Drinking nicely now, it should cellar to 2021+.

96 Points James Halliday
Deep crimson-purple; at this stage the wine is full-bodied, compact and thickly textured, the flavours deep and layered in a black fruit spectrum; the abundant tannins and oak are in perfect balance with the fruit, and a recent vertical tasting put beyond doubt the great future this wine has. Once past its tenth birthday (cork permitting) it will reach its plateau of supple perfection that will last at least another decade. Shiraz. Drink to 2025.
