93 Points Robert Parker
Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2009 Oracle Shiraz gives complex notes of creme de cassis, coffee, grilled duck skin and soy over mace, licorice and tree bark. Full bodied and packed with flavor, it offers a solid backbone of crisp acid and firm, rounded tannins in the mouth, going long and spicy in the finish. Though approachable now, it should drink best 2013 to 2020+.

96 Points James Halliday
Deep crimson-purple; estate-grown, and spent 24 months in French and American oak, oak which has left a significant impression; more likely than not time will bring balance, and the wine has an appealing texture, full-bodied though it may be. Drink to 2040.
