94 Points Robert Parker
The 2005 Shiraz “Lily’s Garden” from McLaren Vale has a splendid nose of cedar, scorched earth, violets, spice box, saddle leather, and blueberry pie. Rich and super-concentrated, it has layers of ripe flavors, a soft blanket of tannins, and terrific complexity. This surprisingly elegant Shiraz will evolve for 8-10 years and drink well through 2025.

94 Points James Halliday
Deep colour, though slightly less purple than Bella's Garden; powerful, strongly regional style, dark chocolate and earth intermingling with blackberry fruit; firm but not rough tannins. Drink to 2025.
