2016 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

SKU #1410472 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Dramatic, intense and powerful, the 2016 Amon Ra Shiraz recalls the 2004 in its youth, crammed with layers of fruit, complex, savory elements and rich, velvety tannins. It's full-bodied, characterized by notes of grilled meat, espresso, black olive, cassis, vanilla, baking spices and an undercurrent of loamy earth. Yes, it's unapologetically big and bold, the product of a warm, sunny climate and ripe grapes, but it does show a sense of decorum, restraint and elegance on the long finish. (JC) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

95 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark From 50-130yo vines, open-fermented, hand-plunged, matured for 16 months in new hogsheads, 95% French. Deep, dense, inky hue; every step (other than a wine-stained crease along the side of the cork) along the way has been carefully scripted, starting and finishing with 15.5% alcohol. If you enjoy mammoth wines of enormous power and depth, go for it. *Gold* Inner quote mark (8/2018)

93 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark The colour is very deep, very youthful, bright, glass-staining purple/red. The bouquet shows raw plums and preserved plums, overlain by smoky, tarry, charcoal-like nuances. It seems a little unready at this juncture. A very big, plummy, almost pruney wine, with masses of tannin and richness. It needs a lot more time and will be long lived. It's just unready right now. (HH) Inner quote mark (5/2018)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A bold, expressive and ripe shiraz with big aromas and flavors of blackberries and spices. The palate adds some chocolate and mocha to the mix. The tannins fold very ripe into the finish, delivering plum cake to close. Inner quote mark (6/2018)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark As dense in color as it is in aroma and flavor, this latest vintage is a rich, chocolatey, oak lacquered wine that oozes raisiny, plummy fruit, dried violets, black licorice, chocolate cake and oak spice. There's a wealth of acid and tannin structure, coupled with plump fruit and a wood spice finish to set this wine up for plenty of years in the cellar. *Cellar Selection* (CP) Inner quote mark (4/2019)
