95 Points Robert Parker
Cut from the same mold as the 2004, the spectacular 2005 Shiraz exhibits an inkier purple color as well as a deeper, richer, more nuanced style. Cropped at .8 tons of fruit per acre, which no doubt accounts for its awesome concentration, it is even better than the 2004, and should be longer lived, evolving for 15 or more years.

95 Points James Halliday
Bright purple-red; replete with dark fruits ranging through blackberry, plum, prune and a dash of licorice; very focused and controlled; no artifice or exaggeration, simply classic restraint. Drink to 2020.

94 Points Vivino
Best Shiraz I have ever had. The spice is perfect with notes anise and dark fruit. Finishes with a great punch.
