2005 Glaetzer "Godolphin" Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon Barossa Valley South Australia

SKU #1130945 95 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Deep purple-red; achieves lusciousness, length and intensity of flavour without resorting to excessive alcohol; great balance and mouthfeel; very good length and equally well-balanced oak. Unfiltered. Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon. Inner quote mark (7/2011)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A blend of 80% Shiraz and 20% Cabernet, this rich, almost Port-like wine also shows a slight herbal note—enough to give it some lift and complexity. It’s inky black in color, imbued with layers of dark fruit so deep they threaten to suck you in before being lightened ever so slightly by hints of vanilla and spice. Long and lush on the finish. Drink now–2015. Inner quote mark (11/2007)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2005 Godolphin, a blend of 80% Shiraz (from 85-year-old vines) and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon (from 60-year-old vines), was aged in 100% new oak, primarily 300-liter French hogsheads. It represents a beautiful marriage of power and elegance, displaying an inky/blue/purple color as well as notions of black raspberries, blueberries, graphite, and sweet pain grille. Ripe, pure, and medium to full-bodied with sweet but noticeable tannin, it can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years. Inner quote mark (10/2006)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (an 80/2% blend) Dark purple. The nose offers an explosively aromatic array of sexy red and dark berry scents accompanied by vanilla, sandalwood, cola and baking spices. Precise blackberry and boysenberry flavors reach every nook and cranny of the palate and seem to gain energy on the finish. Extremely appealing, suave and fresh, offering a striking melange of bright and ripe qualities. (JR) Inner quote mark (8/2007)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very satisfying whole initially. Round and vibrant, maybe just slightly too tart and dry? Certainly pretty hard work! But there is real quality here. 16.5/20 Inner quote mark (12/2009)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dense and distinctive for its anise- and herb-scented cassis and dried tomato flavors that linger effectively on the round finish. Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Inner quote mark (5/2007)
