94 points "Lithe and appealing for its range of flavors, this fascinating wine has dark plum and berry at the core and mint, leather, peach-fuzz and exotic spice notes sneaking in around the edges. Texture is firm but not overly so. It all adds up to an aristocratic red, as the flavors sail on and on. Drink now through 2010. 3,500 cases made. –HS " Best 2002-2010

90 points "MW-Wines Penfolds Master Class with Peter Gago (5/7/05) - Colour: dark crimson. Nose - plums, dark berries. Palate - concentrated, with the signature Barossa sweet fruit core, black and blue berries, dark chocolate, savoury spices reminiscent of cloves and aniseed, well integrated subtle oak. Good structure and balance, with a lengthy finish. Should still improve for some years. According to Peter, the Penfolds RWT Shiraz is designed to sit alongside the Grange, the main difference being the use of French Oak instead of American Oak."
