94 Points Robert Parker
Deep garnet-purple, the 2012 Warner Vineyard Shiraz displays lovely aromas of red and black berries – mulberries, red cherries and black raspberries – with nuances of lavender, black pepper and wild thyme. Light to medium-bodied, the palate is very elegantly styled, with a moderate level of grainy tannins and lively acid finishing with plenty of vibrant berry, pepper and spice flavor layers.

96 Points James Halliday
The difference between this and the Estate Vineyard Shiraz cannot be overemphasised; here, there is deeper colour, and an almost shocking display on the bouquet and palate of heavily spiced black fruits, anise, earth and briar, a touch of bitter chocolate appearing on the finish and aftertaste; the oak, too, plays a larger role in this wine. If you manage to get your hands on a bottle of each, try to decide how much the difference is the hand of god, how much the hand of man. Drink to 2037.
