88 points "Dark purple. High-pitched aromas of spicy cherry, blackberry and licorice, with a musky undertone. Nicely concentrated and weighty, with a chewy texture and spicy dark berry flavors accented by grilled meat and black pepper. Youthfully taut on the finish, showing a vaguely bitter quality. I suspect that this will flesh out with some bottle age. " Best 2008-

96 points "While it’s splitting hairs, I thought the 2004 Shiraz Parable was slightly better than the Testament. Made from two vineyards, 35- and 45-years-old, it was given an upbringing similar to that of the Testament cuvee, but seems to possess slightly more aromatic nuances, and just as much body, concentration, and intensity. It also may reveal more floral, blue, and black fruits in the mouth. This stunningly profound Shiraz should age effortlessly for 15-20 years." Best 2006-2026
