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 "A spectacular effort, the 2002 Shiraz The Octavius (100% old vine Shiraz aged 22 months in both French and American wood) is a noteworthy successor to the phenomenal 2001 released last year. Aromas of figs, chocolate, blackberry and cassis liqueur, roasted meats, and barbecue spice emerge from this hugely extracted, full-bodied monster. Reminiscent of some Grange Hermitage cuvees from the early seventies, it is a wine of supreme quality, with a singular personality as well as 20-25 years of aging potential." Best 2005-2030
