91 points "The Ball Buster is a perennial Best Buy in these pages. There are 15,000 cases of Tait’s 2008 Ball Buster, a blend of 76% Shiraz, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 12% Merlot aged for 12 months in seasoned, predominantly American oak. Opaque purple-colored, it offers up a fragrant perfume of pencil lead, licorice, spice box, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Layered, savory, and long on the palate, this well-balanced, pleasure-bent effort will drink well for another 4-6 years. " Best 2011-2018
