98 Points Robert Parker

This was a remarkable showing for a 20-year-old Grenache-based wine (this vintage does contain 35% Shiraz). The 1998 Eclipse still retains a youthful, dark hue and vibrant aromas of dried herbs and spices joined with rich black cherry fruit. It's full-bodied, soft and luscious on the palate, adding nuances of strawberries, chocolate and licorice. It's a tour de force of South Australian winemaking that should remain at this peak for a few more years.

96 Points Robert Parker

The prodigious 1998 Eclipse possesses a dense purple color as well as floral, blackberry, cassis, smoke, pepper, and roasted meat characteristics. It is a rich, well-made, flawless effort displaying a plush texture, and no evidence of oak. Drink it over the next decade.

85 Points James Halliday

Medium to full red-purple; the bouquet is attractive, with distinctively ripe and juicy grenache leading the attack. The palate is brimming with rich, juicy ripe fruit dusted with spice. One of those 'two bottles in one' wines with a lethal number of standard drinks. Drink to 2005.
