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

87 points "The elegantly-styled, restrained 1999 Shiraz RWT is an elegant example of a Barossa Shiraz. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by a medium-bodied wine offering up floral, raspberry, cherry, and currant aromas nicely dosed with subtle wood. Enjoy this pure, refreshing 1999 over the next decade. " Best 2002-2012
