91 pts. Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate: December, 2006
Aged completely in American oak, this beautiful Shiraz reveals a deep ruby/purple hue, sweet blackberry and blueberry fruit, a subtle note of wood, good opulence, and a steely backbone. It should age well for a decade.
88 pts. Wine Spectator: February 28, 2007
Lean and firm, with black plum, smoke and cedar flavors that persist into the tart finish. Seems tightly wound now, but there’s plenty to develop with time. Best after 2008.
