91, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Deep garnet purple in color, the 2013 The McRae Wood Shiraz has a profound nose with black plums, berries and cherries, alongside spice box, violets, cedar and toast. Full, rich and chewy, though with slightly astringent tannins, the oak is poking out a bit and this wine needs some time."
91, Wine Spectator:
"Perfumed red and black fruit flavors have a licorice edge, with toast and dark chocolate details and plush, toothsome tannins. Drink now through 2030"
