Natalie's Score: 90/100
Attractive fleshy black plums and some toasty oak on the nose. Gorgeously rich, full-bodied and plush on the palate. Terrific price for this quality. Try it with grilled steak or pork chops.
Shiraz food pairings: steak, BBQ hamburgers.

|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Sweet baking spices, slight stewed fruit, plum, mocha, tar, slight herbaceousness. Beautifully balanced! This is an exceptional value priced Shriaz. 91 points. Matt Steeves, @QuercusVino Tasted January 2014 and November 2014.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Oatley's Shiraz's tend to be lighter and brighter than typical Aussie Shiraz. Oatley works with the wines to achieve regionality and clarity of varietal expression. This medium -bodied Shiraz is a good example, with sweet baking spices, ripe stewed fruit, mocha and slight smoke/tar flavours.
|Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Medium ruby in colour, intense with ripe dark fruit, sweet and pungent spices and earthy notes, this wine is soft on the palate with refreshing acidity while the flavours linger on the palate.
Drink now, or cellar until 2016.
Pair with grilled red meats, or enjoy on its own.
Date tasted: May 2014.
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Earthy, with black plum, dried herbs, and tar. The taste is inky and dark with great acidity and some fine tannins. There's a long tannic herb-y finish. This should pair well with white meats braised with herbs and balsamic vinegar.

Great value! A full bodied wine that features rich flavours and aromas of dark fruit, mocha and spice. Pairs excellently with steak! Tasted January 16, 2014 (89/100)
|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Nov 22, 2014: Med ruby, plummy, dark fruit, dark chocolate, spice with hints of eucalyptus and pepper. Plummy, black cherry, blackberry, lightly minty. Well balanced in the mouth, medium full bodied with medium acidity and gentle tannins. Solid value.
|A sumptuous and velvety red wine with complexity and some spicy characteristics. It tastes of berries, plums, baking spices and a touch of mocha on the firm, lasting finish. Source: Winery (Robert Oatley Vineyards)|
