93 points "Plenty of oak comes through on the bouquet, but the power of the wine is unmistakable; layered with flavour and aroma, this is built on sheer brute force." Best 2013-2019

97 points "A superlative Barossa shiraz with a vibrant, floral and spicy perfume of vibrant black and red berries, sweet vanilla/chocolate oak and nuances of mocha. Powerfully concentrated but surprisingly elegant, smooth and silky, its long, seamless palate presents an astonishingly bright and intense expression of crushed berry fruit given its time in new very small smoky oak. Very persistent, it's tightly supported by fine-grained spine of drying and grainy tannin.(19.2/97, YTD 2016-2024+)" Best 2016-2024
