90 Points Robert Parker
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2012 Stonewell Shiraz offers aromas of cassis, mulberries and warm plums with suggestions of dried mint, dark chocolate and violets. Full-bodied, rich and solidly built with firm, grainy tannins and a lively backbone, it delivers plenty of classic Barossa flavors and a good, long finish.

96 Points James Halliday
Excellent colour; much firmer and more concentrated than Eight Songs; classy blackberry fruit, equally classy oak, and tannins which have more authority, the last still to fully soften into the wine. This is, and will be for many years, a classic. Drink to 2025.
