Wine Advocate 97/100 "The purple/black 2005 Evil Incarnate Shiraz (230 cases) was aged for 36 months in new French oak (now entirely absorbed by the wine) and offers up an other-worldly, kinky perfume of liquid slate, licorice, pencil lead, smoked meat, blueberry, and blackberry jam. This high-octane Shiraz is full-bodied, voluptuous, thick, and rich, with gobs of succulent, spicy blue and black fruits, enough ripe tannin for 6-8 years of further evolution, and a long, pure finish. It should be at its best from 2015 to 2035. " WA 97/100 Feb 2009
WA 92 The 2005 Grenache Clarendon is dark ruby-colored with an enticing bouquet of violets, damp earth, and sappy black cherry. This leads to a ripe, velvety-textured, intensely fruity, structured wine which will evolve for 4-5 years and drink well through 2020. JM Oct 2007.
WA 92 The 2008 Hickinbotham Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has a very deep garnet-purple color and intense notes of black currant juice, Provence herbs, kirsch, chocolate, espresso, pencil shavings and iron ore. Full-bodied, very crisp and rich with a high level of fine tannins, it has a long coffee laced finish. Drink it 2012 to 2018. LPB Dec 2010.
WA 95 "The exceptionally fragrant, dark purple 2003 Syrah Moritz Vineyard boasts an extraordinary perfume of acacia flowers, blackberries, cassis, roasted meats, and subtle wood. With fabulous concentration, an expansive, savory texture, well-integrated acidity, alcohol, and wood, and a remarkable finish with plenty of sweet tannin, it can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years. " Wine Advocate Oct 2005
WAS:$240 - James Halliday 96 points. "Good hue; blackberry, blackcurrant, earth and dark chocolate all coalesce on the medium- to full-bodied palate, which has outstanding texture and structure, oak and tannins precisely controlled; 20 years cellaring suggestion on front label seems remarkably modest. Only available in magnum" Cellaring potential 20 years.
WA 97 The 2005 Shiraz “Attunga 1865” is sourced from ungrafted vines planted in the Clare Valley in 1865. It spent 25 months in 100% new French oak hogsheads and was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Opaque purple/black, it reveals an ethereal bouquet of crushed rocks, acacia flowers, espresso, mocha, black cherry, and blackberry. This leads to a powerful, intense, yet elegant wine with a very long, seamless finish. This beautifully balanced effort will excite tasters over the next 25 years. Kilikanoon’s winemaker is the talented Kevin Mitchell. The house specialty is Shiraz but Mitchell does equally well with Riesling, Cabernet...

WA 97 The 2006 Black Guts Shiraz competes favorably with its predecessors. The wine spent 30 months in 10% new American oak, 25% new French oak, and 65% old French barrels. Purple in color, it displays scents of cedar, lavender, incense, rosemary, smoked meat, and blueberry. Plush on the palate with a sense of elegance, this incredibly intense, savory, impeccably balanced Shiraz has layers of flavor, and is amazingly light on its feet. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.

WS 94. WA 94. Deep purple colored, the 2009 “Coach House Block” Shiraz offers a vibrant, youthful nose of ripe black cherries, crushed blueberries and red currants over aromas of allspice, cloves, cinnamon stick and toast. Very full bodied, ripe and decadently fruited in the mouth, the richness is well structured with a medium to firm level of rounded tannins and crisp acidity. The finish is very long on this voluptuous stunner. Though tempting to drink now, it should be at its best 2013 to 2021+. LPB Feb 2012.
Antonio Galloni 94. Wine Advocate 93. "Bright purple. Complex, pungent aromas of raspberry, blackberry, potpourri and incense, with a suave mineral note adding vibrancy. Sweet, minerally and densely packed, with terrific sappy vivacity to the flavors of raspberry and cherry preserves and minerals. With air, the spiciness gained strength and sexy floral notes emerged. Finishes with impressive breadth, fully ripe, gentle tannins and superb length." AG "The 2007 Shiraz Zippy's Block from Roennfeldt Road in the Marananga sub region of Barossa Valley, is a brooding, burly wine with a splendid nose of plum, tar, licorice, smoke, game, and...
