86 points "A green, almost vegetal note runs through otherwise ripe, spicy flavors, offering cherry and pepper character, remaining fleshy through the finish. Drink now through 2007. 75 cases imported. (HS)" Best 2003-2007

96 points "Made from 100% Shiraz, the massive, full-bodied 1999 Octavius continues the succession of profound efforts from Yalumba. Tremendously rich, intense, and multidimensional, it offers up notes of blackberries, sweet smoke, and melted asphalt." Best 2005-2025
