James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion:

"From 1899 and 1965 estate plantings, matured in French (75%) and American oak for 15 months. An exceptional pedigree reflected in a shiraz of rare elegance, balance and finesse; its supple, medium-bodied palate is almost lip smacking, so juicy is it, but there is no shortage of texture or structure." Reviewed August 2014

James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com:

"A very ripe, fragrant wine that has plenty of blackberry fruit, some tarry elements and a distinct earthy tone. Very ripe and still fresh. The palate's sturdy, dense and balanced. Very even, dark-plum flavors twist tarry through the finish. Tannins creep soft and smooth. Drink in 2020." Reviewed 1/27/15

Wine Spectator:

"Sleek, polished and refined, wrapping cherry, tobacco and cinnamon flavors in silky tannins. The finish shows persistence. Best from 2016 through 2022. 1,200 cases made." Reviewed June 30, 2015

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2012 Shiraz The Bogan offers a nose of mulberries and preserved plums with hints of Indian spices, dusty earth and unsmoked tobacco. Medium-bodied, the palate is relatively elegant and restrained with pleasant earthy and savory flavors as opposed to being overtly fruity. The chewy tannins and seamless acidity nicely frame the fruit and it finishes with excellent length possessing intensity rather than power." Reviewed June 2015
