93 points "ROBERT PARKER 93 POINTS Wine Advocate # 173 Oct 2007 Jay Miller 93 Drink 2010 - 2025 $34 (40) Tait has been establishing a track record for hedonistically rendered wines at consumer friendly prices for several years. The 2005 Basket Pressed Shiraz comes from a 60-year-old vineyard with yields of 1 – 2 tons per acre. The wine was aged in 20% new French oak and the balance one- to two-year-old American oak. Opaque purple in color, it delivers an array of scents including pain grille, pepper, sausage, blueberry, licorice, and chocolate. Thick and rich, this opulent Shiraz has a velvety texture, complex flavors, and a very long, sweet finish. It will benefit from 3-4 years of cellaring and will provide pleasure through 2025.

91 points "Smooth and generous, a focused beam of bright plum and blueberry flavors playing against savory notes, hinting at smoke and roasted red peppers as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2015. 500 cases made. –HS "
