91 points "91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Uncut Shiraz spent 16 months in 100% new, predominantly French oak before bottling without fining or filtration. Captivating aromas of sandalwood, smoked meat, incense, lavender, blueberry, and chocolate lead to a layered, full-bodied, succulent Shiraz with excellent grip and length. Enjoy this pleasure-bent effort over the next 8-10 years." 12/2009 "

95 points "Deep, dense colour; regional licorice and dark chocolate overtones to the blackberry fruit of the bouquet leap from the glass, the medium- to full-bodied palate providing more of the same, with 16 months in French oak doing little more than rounding off the tannins. Screwcap. 14.5% alc. Rating 95 Drink 2028 " Best 2013-2028

"This is a big, bold Shiraz that manages to crank out the horsepower with surprising grace. When I tasted it today with Jimmy C, I couldn't help but think of Ridge Lytton Springs, another big wine that never goes "over the top". The flavors are all ripe blue berry and black pepper, and the wine is very full bodied. The finish comes together nicely, and I think that this would be an excellent partner for slow and low BBQ. Where is the pulled pig? "
