Glen Eldon Dry Bore Shiraz 2003 750ml, Barossa Valley
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - (91-93) pts - The 2003 Shiraz Dry Bore is a full-throttle effort aged 24 months in a combination of French and American hogsheads. Its opaque ruby/purple color is accompanied by aromas of loamy soil, pepper, herbs, black currants, and berries. Spicy, rich, slightly rustic, but impressively endowed, it should drink well for a decade or more. - Oct 2005
James Halliday's Wine Companion - 90 pts - Rich, juicy, jammy blackberry fruit; controlled extract and fine tannins; a long future. Date tasted 26 May 2006. Drink by 2018.
Wine Spectator - 93 pts - Rich, dense and beautifully focused, a big wine that somehow remains graceful, offering ripe black cherry, dried blueberry and sweet plum aromas and flavors, the finish wrapped in a silky sari of sweet oak. Best from 2009 through 2020. 1,000 cases made. -HS Sep 30 2006
