97 Points Robert Parker
The blockbuster 2003 Shiraz Oracle, aged in 300 liter French hogsheads (50% new and 50% 1-year-old), possesses classic blackberry, graphite, and cassis notes, a full-bodied, powerful style, great definition and purity, and surprising elegance and lightness for a wine of this size and richness. Approachable now, it should age nicely for 15 or more years.

94 Points James Halliday
Deeper colour than the Covenant; powerful, rich, concentrated blackberry, earthy fruit; impressive structure and texture, with ripe tannins and assured oak. Estate-grown. Drink to 2015.
