97 Points Robert Parker

Deep garnet-brick colored, the 2002 The Octavius (Shiraz Old Vine) is wonderfully spicy and peppery with fragrant Indian spice and sandalwood complementing a core of prunes and baked blackberries. Medium to full-bodied, voluptuous and velvety, the palate is opulent and exotic, finishing with great depth and persistence.

96 Points Robert Parker

A spectacular effort, the 2002 Shiraz The Octavius (100% old vine Shiraz aged 22 months in both French and American wood) is a noteworthy successor to the phenomenal 2001 released last year. Aromas of figs, chocolate, blackberry and cassis liqueur, roasted meats, and barbecue spice emerge from this hugely extracted, full-bodied monster. Reminiscent of some Grange Hermitage cuvees from the early seventies, it is a wine of supreme quality, with a singular personality as well as 20-25 years of aging potential.

94 Points James Halliday

Excellent hue; complex blackberry and plum fruit; spicy mocha oak and silky tannins; impressive length. Drink to 2020.
