"92 points Wine Spectator Advance: "polished, focused and gorgeously balanced to display its raspberry, cherry and red plum notes in impressive harmony. the flavors linger against a touch of oak and refined tannins on the long finish. drink now through 2015." (05/31/07) 92 points Robert Parker: "The 2005 Shiraz Shotfire Ridge beefs up the oak and fruit intensity in a full-bodied, chocolaty, rich, ball buster styled Barossa Shiraz that coats the palate, stains the teeth, and provides an intense mouthful of wine. It should drink well for 10-12 years. It is a remarkable value." (10/06) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep, saturated purple. Dusty deep aromas of espresso-tinged blackberry, blueberry and blackcurrant. Lush, velvety and sweet, the blackberry and blueberry flavors veering toward liqueur-like but retaining focus and clarity. I suspect that many hard-core Old World palates might find this a bit too much but I'm impressed." "
