98 Points - A brooding nose, deep inky iodine-like notes as well as dark cherry, plum and redder berries, this is a statement of purity and concentration, really impressive craftsmanship too. The palate has a silky and luscious feel, beautifully realised tannins, velvety, even and flawless, a core of sweet red plum flavour and a long, pure fruit finish. Masterful wine. Drink now and for 15+ years.

James Halliday Wine Companion

97 Points - This is stellar. The length, the breadth, the form, the immaculate rollout of tannin. It shows cherry plum, earth, violet and spice, but the sum of such humble parts is so much more than that. Milk chocolate from oak simply goes with the flow. We stand in the presence of something resembling greatness.

Huon Hooke

96 Points - Deep, bright, red/purple colour; the bouquet subtle, with dark fruits, spices and earthy, meaty nuances. The wine is full-bodied and very intense, showing good concentration and power, drive and precision, with great length and ample fine-grained tannins, which are superbly gentle. A core of fruit-sweetness adds charm and the tannins provide a clean, harmonious aftertaste that powers on and on. An outstanding Hunter shiraz.
