    91 Points - Robert Parker (Wine Advocate)
    "There are 70,000 cases of the 2005 Red, a blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot from young vines. However, this is no wimpy wine at 15% alcohol. An unbelievable value, it boasts a dense ruby/purple color as well as an uplifted, projected nose of sweet red and black fruits, earth, and spice box. Supple-textured with a voluptuous mouthfeel and unbelievable richness, this wine clearly over-delivers. Enjoy it over the next 2-3 years."

    Smokey nose. Bold wine which now a lot less jammy than a year or 2 ago. Lots of pepper on the mid palette and finish. Can taste the high alcohol but it is well integrated into the wine.
