93 points "Meaty, dark and pruney aromas of currants, blackberries and plums with sweet chocolate and vanilla oak. Smooth, black and briary, its sumptuous palate reveals a fine depth of plush, velvet-like texture and concentrated licorice and cassis-like fruit. There’s a faint suggestion of over-ripeness, but the wine has plenty of richness and substance. 17.2, drink 2006-2009+ ($28 retail, approx.)" Best 2007-2010

4 stars "Color: dark; Aromas: spicy, red berry, black berry; Sweetness: dry; Finish: very persistent; This was a sample. We bought two bottles of this wine one was for longer term storage. It was a very nice full-bodied wine. Both of us enjoyed it very much. The wine had a dark berry, slightly oaky nose but was very well balanced. It's taste further reinforced its aroma with a much stronger inensity. It was high in alcohol but wasn't overpowered by an alcoholic taste." Best -2016

95 points "James Halliday gave this wine 96 points in his upcoming Wine Companion book and being from such a great Barossa vintage (2006), I thought I would give it a try. Well, it seems Halliday was spot on the money. Deep purple (almost black) in colour, the nose is a mix of fruitcake, dark chocolate, plum, hints of cherries and mocha. It is oppulent yet refined all at the same time. The palate is a beautiful expression of Barossa Shiraz with warm chocolate, mocha, plums and spice tannins to finish. This really blew me away. Cellar 10 years 95 points" Best 2008-2018
