95 Points Robert Parker

The spectacular 1996 Shiraz Old Vine The Octavius is a basket-pressed Shiraz possessing huge power as well as massive, oozing, cedar and glycerin-imbued blackberry and cassis aromas and flavors. This superb effort is one of the great Old Vine Shiraz cuvees available in the marketplace. It should drink well for up to two decades.

92 Points James Halliday

Dark, dense red-purple; aromas leap from the glass, ranging through vanilla, chocolate and mint, all in mega-mode. The palate simply oozes black cherry/berry fruit; lusciously concentrated but not extractive or, amazingly, over-oaked. Drink to 2021.
