Wine Spectator | Rating: 89Ripe and juicy, with pretty plum and berry fruit shaded with spicy oak. It's the fruit that persists on the finish. Tannins are refined.Author: Harvey Steiman
Wine Advocate | Rating: 92The stunning 2000 Shiraz (100% Shiraz aged in 80% American and 20% French oak) is a flamboyant, extroverted, exuberant, full-bodied offering with fabulous blackberry and cassis fruit intertwined with hints of new oak and pepper. Dense, voluptuous, and hedonistic, it will provide enjoyment over the next 5-7 years. This personality-filled offering provides enormous fun as well as pleasure.Author: Robert Parker
