Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

The 2012 Inception Deep Layered Red, a blend of 81 % Shiraz, 10% Petit Verdot and 9% Mourvedre that matured in 300 L barrels for 12 to 14 months, has appealing aromas of toasted oak reminiscent of Quertannin, cherry/black cherry cola, stems together with subtle lees and green pepper notes. It is a medium bodied, off-dry, fruity wine; with checked acidity, refined tannins (decant for 15 min) and a medium finish. Drink at a party or with food; drink now to 2018 (screw cap enclosure). Rated this party favorite at 85 pts. Tasted in Apr/14.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
