Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 92 points
The full-bodied 2017 Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz ratchets up the intensity. It’s a dark-fruited, super ripe, chocolaty mass that’s given form on the palate by velvety tannins. A hint of raspberries is overpowered by charred oak and cola notes, but it does serve to lighten the overall impression, emerging on the finish to provide mouthwatering length.
Wine Spectator – 92 points
Stylish, fragrant and supple, with dried lavender, vanilla bean and mocha notes that add richness to the core of ripe, jammy blueberry and blackberry flavors. Harmonious and creamy on the long, generous finish.
