2015 d'Arenberg "The Dead Arm" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia (Elsewhere $64)

96 points James Halliday: "This is a particularly good Dead Arm, its alcohol miraculously the same as the '14, but however that may be, it has an elegance to its mouthfeel and lingering finish." (08/2018) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Black cherries and black olives mark the nose of the 2015 The Dead Arm Shiraz, d'Arenberg's flagship bottling. It's a blend of older and younger vines from different sites, depending on what the fruit has to offer. Full-bodied, concentrated and firmly structured, it's nevertheless velvety on the long finish, p ...

2016 John Duval "Entity" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $40)

97 points James Halliday: "60% Barossa Valley, 40% Eden Valley grapes, open-fermented with submerged cap, matured for 15 months in new (33%) and used French hogsheads. Deeply colored; this is at once full-bodied and elegant, not a common marriage with young red wines with decades in front of them. The flavors are all black: blackberry, blackcurrant, black cherry, earth and licorice. The old vines have also provided ripe tannins, the whole theme resonated with oak a la Grange." (12/2018) 94 points James Suckling: "A ripe nose with the classic blackberry ...

2016 d'Arenberg "The Stump Jump" Shiraz McLaren Vale

90 points Wine Spectator: "Distinctive, with a fresh note of spearmint complementing the juicy core of plum and blackberry flavors. Herb, chai tea and cigar box elements linger on the long, expressive finish, where the tannins firm up but never get in the way. *Best Value* (MW)" (12/2018) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The medium-bodied 2016 The Stump Jump Shiraz is another terrific bargain. No, it's not a big, plush wine, but it is a crisp, remarkably drinkable mouthful of Shiraz. Red plums and cherries are buttressed by enough tannins so that this c ...

Deep crimson-purple; ultra full-bodied and densely packed with the darkest black fruits, licorice, 70% cacao dark chocolate and ripe tannins. Will live forever."

As is appropriate, complex, but largely fruit-driven, with red cherries/berries and plums to the fore, oak and (particularly) tannins taking a back seat."

2016 Hentley Farm Shiraz Barossa Valley

95 points James Halliday: "There's no magic in this wine other than the very high quality of the grapes (and the low price). The colour is typical Hentley Farm, deep, but with a vivid crimson-purple rim; the expressive black fruits bouquet and the medium to full-bodied, richly textured palate following the same path. The blackberry essence flavours are intense and luscious, bright and fresh."

It has the succulence of Langhorne Creek, but with a raft of flowery/spicy notes not so common in the region. Mocha oak adds another dimension, cuddling up to the plump tannins. Hedonistic? You bet."

From the producer: "The Barossa is famous for its viticulture, history and winemaking dating back to the 1840s. At its heart is the Valley Floor, a highly-prized strip of prime viticultural land which is the very foundation and forms the essence of this wine. A true taste of the Barossa."

2006 Mollydooker "Carnival of Love" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Shiraz 'Carnival of Love' was sourced from a single vineyard. The sensational nose, consisting of violets, lilacs, meat, game, leather, blueberry, and chocolate, leaps from the glass. On the palate this full-bodied wine somehow manages to combine power with elegance. The sweet tannins are well-concealed and the finish lasts for at least one minute. It will provide pleasure for 25 years but who will be that patient? (JM)" (10/2007) 95 points Wine Spectator: "A stunning wine of immense depth and integrit ...

2006 Two Hands "Bella's Garden" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

94 points James Halliday: "More opulent and fleshy than Gnarly Dudes, leaving no corner of the mouth untouched; the fruit, oak and tannins carry the alcohol." (03/2008) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red. Energetic red and dark berry, floral and mineral scents along with a hint of spun sugar. Lively, sharply focused black raspberry and cherry preserve flavors are surprisingly weightless, with back-end mineral bite adding energy. A vibrant, deeply flavored Shiraz that's very inviting right now but has the balance to age. (JR ...

2017 Hentley Farm Grenache Rosé Barossa Valley

(08/2018) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Crushed stone, citrus rind and strawberries all mingle on the nose of Hentley Farm's 2017 Rose. It's not entirely dry tasting, but it remains light-bodied and refreshing, with enough bright red berries and citrus fruit flavors to balance any small amounts of residual sugar. ...

2001 Forefathers McLaren Vale Shiraz

94 Points from The Wine Spectator! - "New Zealand-born Nick Goldschmidt, winemaker at Simi in California, and his New Zealand-born wife started this label as a home for their California Cabernet, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and this stunning Shiraz. It's extraordinarily rich and spicy, dripping with ultraripe blueberry, plum and currant fruit that lasts and lasts on the plush finish, polished but powerful. You could spend several times as much and not get nearly the kick. Drink now through 2015. H.S."

(07/2011) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A stunning effort, the 2002 Shiraz Command exhibits an inky/blue/purple color as well as a sweet perfume of camphor, blueberries, blackberries, acacia flowers, and smoky, toasty oak.

2004 Mitolo "GAM" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

I love the lift and clarity to the wine and it showed beautifully over the two days the bottle was open. On the palate, it’s full bodied with stunning balance, a lush, full texture, fresh acids, juicy fruit and a long finish. Given where the ’03 is right now and how much younger this wine seems, it could have a long life ahead of it. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this still going ...

2001 Henry's Drive "Reserve" Shiraz Padthaway South Australia

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Some might feel the 2001 Shiraz Reserve is too much of a good thing, but it is neither port-like, pruny, nor flat. It is simply crammed with concentrated blackberry and cassis fruit in an obvious but spectacularly textured style. It possesses considerable nuances. Loaded and thick, with low acidity and huge amounts of tannin, all concealed by lavish quantities of fruit and extract, this stunning wine can be drunk now, but should age effortlessly for 7-10 years, possibly longer.
