Rob Geddes MW (2008 Vintage) says
Blood plum, eucalypt, mint and caramel oak. Full on ripe berry fruit with a deep middle palate of obvious flavours. sweet fruited almost cherry syrup or jammy conserve like flavour. Full bodied and very ripe forceful fruity firm finishing ripe style. Tannin and oak support and medium plus fruit length means it will develop if you like the big ripe style.

A rustic and deeply powerful, astringent shiraz that will evfentually find balace and softness. Its pepperfy, spicy and meaty aromas of blackberry confiture and briar are knit with chocolate/cedary oak and backed by a hint of black tea, while its deeply ripened, slightly backed expression of briary plum, blueberry and blackberry flavours overlies a firm, slightly raw and drying backbone.

Jeremy Oliver (2007 Vintage) says
Clearly made from stressed, faintly baked fruit, with a deep, oaky and confiture-like presence of black and red berries, and blueberries that becomes more pruney and currant-like towards the finish. A forward, generous and spicy, faintly minty regional shiraz from a very challenging season given plenty of smoky, cedary and vanilla oak.

The hallmark style is full-bodied, tannic with rich cherry aromas and very sweet dark plums and cassis fruit palate and balanced oak.

Jeremy Oliver (2005 Vintage) says
Smoky, vanilla and ashtray-like oak sits alongside deep, spicy aromas of blackberries, plums and currants, with a musky background of clove and cinnamon-like spiciness. Powerful, dark and chocolatey, its sumptuous, ultra-ripe and meaty palate of blackberries and plums is slightly overwhelmed by its rather charry and raw-edged complement of smoky oak, which tends to detract a little from the fruit's lusciousness and depth of flavour.

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2005 Vintage) says
A big, dry red with ample tannin structure and lots of warm, toasty, toffeed persistence. The general rule is that more alcohol means more flavour, but that's not necessarily the case here - though it's hardly wimpy. It tastes of tar and mint, lavender and earth, and it keeps itself dry and muscular throughout. It has lost the flush of youth but hasn't yet added mature character - it should taste better, and rate higher, in a few years' time.

Jeremy Oliver (2004 Vintage) says
A firm, long-term and rustic shiraz likely to develop gamey complexity. Finely crafted, its intense perfume of sweet dark berries, plums and violets reveals meaty, spicy and sage-like undertones, plus a whiff of black pepper. Its searingly intense and vibrant fruit and polished cedary oak influences overlie a firm, drying backbone of powdery tannin.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Medium to full red-purple; clean, dark berry /black cherry fruit with touches of spice on the bouquet; a solidly built and structured palate with ripe tannins running throughout its length, and sweetening from the vanilla oak. The 14.5° alcohol doesn't threaten or unbalance the wine.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Dense red-purple; powerful, dark chocolate fruit is matched by attractive cigar box oak on the bouquet; concentrated, powerhouse plum and chocolate-flavoured fruit is matched by abundant oak and long, persistent tannins on the palate.
