Very deep purple-black in color, the 2012 Amon Ra reveals intense notes of blackcurrant cordial, blackberry compote and licorice with nuances of cloves, allspice, chocolate box and salami as well as a whiff of espresso. The 100% Shiraz palate offers a beast of a wine that is densely packed with black fruit and baking spice flavors and is supported with firm, grainy tannins and crisp acid through to a finish with excellent persistence. Drink it 2015 to 2025+. 97+ - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Huon Hooke - Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine, March 2014
A rich, dense, full-bodied Barossa blockbuster that is balanced and elegant. There is lots of oak with liqueur cherry and spicy, meaty aromas. The palate is fleshy, concentrated and profound with ample smooth tannins.

A heady, complex bouquet exudes dark fruit liqueur and floral pastille qualities, along with notes of sandalwood, smoked meat and star anise. Sweet and deeply pitched on the palate, offering vibrant cassis and boysenberry flavors that gain vivacity with air. Chewy tannins frame the sappy fruit on a lovely lingering finish.

Supple and expressive, this is layered with clove- and nutmeg-accented cherry and floral flavors, coming together seamlessly on the sleek finish. Offers integrity and depth. Best from 2015 through 2020. – HS
