James Halliday "Blackcurrant, blackberry, plum and dark chocolate in a medium- to full-bodied frame; built-in tannins and moderate length."
94 Points - James Halliday
Deep crimson-purple; quite lifted and focused red fruits on the bouquet; full-bodied, the palate is full of rich, bright fruits and is surprisingly long.
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Fox Creek made no 2003 Reserve Shiraz, so this Short Row is the year's top wine. It's plummy and elegant on the palate, with some red pencil eraser and bread flour accents, and a seeped-tea bite on the finish. Aromas—wheat flour, red fruit, licorice—are pretty, too.
90+ Points - Robert Parker
Produced from 34-year-old vines, the dense ruby/purple-tinged 2004 Shiraz Amery offers up dusty, loamy earth, black fruit, spicy oak, and roasted meat and herb-like aromas.
