97+ Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate (February 2014)

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+.

94 Josh Raynolds, Vinous (July 2013)

Glass-staining purple. 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.
