87 points "Color: dark; Nose: closed; Acidity: supple; Sweetness: dry; Body: medium-bodied; Finish: medium; Overall: pleasant; I found the wine rather simple and without an overabundance of anything. Some apparent sweetness but generally a bit disappointing. Could be bottle shock on the ship in from Los Angeles (last month) or overrated by the pro's (surprise). Will see how it opens up overnight. Is this why Winex dumped it at $27? I got black cherries and tar on the palate. The nose seemed to be mostly alcoholic with a brambly nature. Maybe the spicy barbecue sauce on my chop hosed my pallet."

5 stars "Overall: elegant; Fantastic wine - this was the 2002 vintage. So smooth after all these years of cellaring. One of the best wines I've ever drunk."

93 points ""A combination of 70% Shiraz, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Merlot aged 18 months in wood (15% new), the 2002 Keyneton Estate boasts impressive intensity, richness, concentration, and aromatics (black currants, licorice, earthy spice, and a hint of wood). A beauty, with a meatiness to its richness and intensity, it should drink well for a decade or more. " " Best 2006-2016
