2004 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

SKU #1119436 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Still looking fresh and complete, Glaetzer's 2004 Amon Ra Shiraz is full-bodied, rich and dark-fruited, with black cherry and plum fruit forming the base, while grace notes of baking spices, mocha and cedar play about the edges. Creamy and velvety in texture, with a long finish, it remains at its peak and should continue to drink well for another decade or more. (JC) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

95 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Glorious purple-red; proclaims its old vine origins from the word go, and carries its alcohol. A rich, sumptuous cascade of blackberry, plum, chocolate and quality oak. Inner quote mark (7/2011)

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Saturated violet. Amazingly complex bouquet of creme de cassis, candied blackberry, fresh flowers, cocoa powder and minerals. Pulls off the feat of being dense and sweet but also bright and lively, with potent dark berry, kirsch and licorice candy flavors that deepen with air. The tannins, if you can find them under the mountain of flavor, are fine-grained and wonderfully supple. This wine's purity of fruit, along with its precision and richness, made it one of the most dramatic wines of my tastings. (JR) Inner quote mark (7/2006)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Again, very similar to the other Amon-Ra wines but in a softer, fatter profile with less acidity. Very dark and rich with black currant, plum, licorice and vanilla notes on the nose. Very full bodied with a smooth, soft feel and a long finish. Inner quote mark (9/2006)

K&L Notes

This big Barossa Shiraz was plucked from the gnarled arms of 105- to 115-year-old vines, and was named after Egyptian god Amon-Ra. The temple of the same name is the reputed birthplace of large-scale commercial winemaking - or at least, a more ancient version of the church "clos."
