The dense, chewy, rich, deeply-colored 2005 Shiraz is a full-bodied, ripe, intense wine, but does not reveal quite the same thrilling level of quality as the Cabernet. Nevertheless, it is no wimpy wine, boasting 16% alcohol as well as stunning richness and length.
93 points, Robert Parker (October 2006)
Supple, generous and nicely focused to show off its plush blueberry, plum, dusky spice and cream flavors, lingering extensively on the polished finish. Has high alcohol, but carries it well.
