  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

    ($110) Inky, glass-staining purple. Explosively perfumed, exotic bouquet of ripe boysenberry, cherry preserves, candied licorice, black olive, vanilla and Indian spices. Completely saturates the palate with deep, sweet red and dark berry liqueur flavors, along with dark chocolate, anise and cola qualities. Broad, velvety and surprisingly lively for its size, this shiraz finishes with excellent thrust and cling. Doesn't want to let go of the palate.

    Dark and tarry in aroma, with lots of ripe cherry, chocolate and spice flavors carried by an open frame. Has intensity, but manages to feel elegant and lively.

    Mint, liquorice, eucalyptus, herbs and loganberry fruit. A dash of oak seasoning on the palate, lots of concentration and still very infantile. Lovely quality of flavours on the palate and plenty of potential for future ageing. (RH)

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 96

    The 2004 The Octavius is 100% Shiraz aged for 22 months in American and Hungarian oak, much of it new. Inky black/purple, it coats the glass with legs. It has an alluring perfume of toasty oak, plum, licorice, blueberry, bacon, blackberry, and a hint of chocolate. Voluptuous and youthful, it has intense flavors, plenty of well-concealed structure, and a 60-second finish.
