83 Points Robert Parker
Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2012 The King Reserve Shiraz shows a slight whiff of rubbery reduction before red and black berry aromas with suggestions of dried herbs and pepper take over. The medium-bodied frame has a decent core of fruit, medium levels of chewy tannins, tart acid and an earthy finish of moderate length. Drink it now.
