92 points "8/14/2009 & rated 92 points: Black/purple. Arresting, very penetrating nose, with abundant black cherry and blueberry: harmonious, seductive, slinky. Very well padded, soft, and thick. Still to unfurl on the palate, but apparently all in place and hugely promising. This remains succulent and finishes strongly. Drink to 2025. 17.5/20.

92 points "The 2005 RWT Shiraz was aged in 70% new French oak hogsheads. The bouquet shows off aromas of pain grille, pencil lead, damp earth, pepper, game, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Velvety textured, supple, ripe and succulent, this elegant effort is impeccably balanced and built for pleasure. Drink it over the next 10-12 years. " Best 2009-2021
