Expert Reviews

The 2006 Evil Incarnate Shiraz stains the glass as it delivers aromas of sage, rosemary, blueberry, and chocolate. Rich, full-bodied, super-concentrated, and succulent on the palate, this impeccably balanced effort has sucked up all its oak. It has enough structure to evolve for several years and should drink well through 2021. Wine Advocate 95-98

"The Evil Incarnate Shiraz, a wine sourced from 40-80-year-old vines from the Hoffman Vineyard in the Ebenezer sub-region of the Barossa. It was aged for 36 months in French oak hogsheads. It has a super-expressive nose of smoke, scorched earth, game, blueberry, & blackberry. Full-bodied & structured, it should be cellared for 4-6 years. Despite its size, this wine remains surprisingly light on its feet." - Robert Parker
