95 Points Robert Parker
The 2003 Shiraz Reserve, which I assume is made from the richest barrels, has all the same characteristics of the regular bottling, with more weight, opulence, and persistence. The 16% alcohol is beautifully concealed by its prodigious concentration. Readers who love the extroverted personalities of these wild and crazy Australian reds should drink it over the next 10-12 years.

90 Points James Halliday
Powerful blackberry, licorice and dark chocolate fruit; fractionally sharp tannins; will evolve. Drink to 2013.
