"The stunning 2003 Shiraz Reserve was fashioned from low yields of one ton of fruit per acre, & aged in 100% new French oak hogsheads. It boasts an inky/purple color, off the charts concentration, & a spectacular, full-bodied nose of blackberries, blueberries, graphite, & smoky espresso. Rich & intensely concentrated, with an inky taste as well as tremendous thickness, it’s not for everybody, but it is neither over the top nor out of balance." - Robert Parker
"Dense red-purple; full-bodied, & similarly massively concentrated, but has more light & shade, not as all-consuming power; still has layer-upon-layer of flavour. A tiny parcel from Green's Vineyard." - James Halliday
