88 points "Broad, ripe and spicy, unusual for Coonawarra, with a strong green olive note running through the pepper and pomegranate flavors, finishing a mite gamy. Drink now through 2012. 50 cases imported. (HS)" Best 2005-2012

95 points "A brilliant effort, the 2002 Shiraz Special Select is one of the finest Shiraz cuvees I have ever tasted from the red soils of Coonawarra. Its dense inky/ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet aromas of asphalt, charcoal, graphite, blackberries, and cassis. Rich and dense, with tremendous purity, wonderful definition, full-bodied power, and loads of sex appeal, this is a lusty, heady, complex, rich Shiraz to enjoy now and over the next decade." Best 2005-2015
