"Deep crimson. Ethereal pure blackberry pastille roasted chestnut mocha aromas with hint ginger notes. Voluminous and animated wine with dense saturated blackberry dark chocolate fruits, plentiful fine velvety tannins and superb integrated roasted chestnut, mocha vanilla oak complexity. Finishes chocolaty firm. Elemental, powerful and seductive with years ahead of it. Should develop into a classic."

"A wine that was launched in 2000 with the 1997. There have been some outstanding wines under this label but I'm not sure I tasted better. Essential difference from other Penfolds shiraz being that it gets all French oak of which 64% was new. The difference is striking. This has such energy and brilliance. The scented aromas are exquisite with floral berry notes and a trace of cedar. The palate is seamlessly structured yet powerful and elegance. This is style with a capital S. The palate pulls you in then gradually releases layer upon layer of deep and compelling flavours. A classic."

"Very deep, glass-staining purple/red colour. The bouquet is also very intense and concentrated, essency and profound, loaded with toasty-charry oak and mocha, espresso coffee, dark chocolate aromas, the palate formidably powerful, concentrated and intense. The flavour tracks the bouquet precisely and the tannins and extract give the palate a massive density and breathtakingly mouth-coating texture, the whole entity combining in a mighty crescendo that roars through the finish to a very long aftertaste. The density of the wine is rare indeed: you almost feel you could stand a spoon up in it."
