"The deep dark ruby/purple-colored 1999 Shiraz St. Henri possesses clean black currant, cherry, and earth-like notes with a hint of pepper in the background. Medium-bodied, slightly compact, but tasty, it should be drunk over the next 4-5 years." Best 2003-2008

92 points "Remarkably supple and seamless, holding back on its beautiful, ripe blackberry, cherry, leather and pepper flavors until they come through almost as a second wave, swamping the finish and begging for another sip. A different flavor seems to emerge first with each sip. This is made with no new oak, and the fruit character is intoxicating in a wine of such refinement. Drink now through 2020. 17,000 cases made" Best 2004-2020

95 points "Supple, elegant shiraz with a spicy floral perfume of cassis, blackberries and raspberries with peppery undertones of treacle and caramel, star anise and restrained cedary oak. Its long and satiny palate presents pristine, vibrant fruit over a fine-grained chassis, finishing smooth and gentle with delightful intensity. (South Australia, 18.7, 2011-2019)" Best 2011-2019
