93 points "An outrageous value, there are 25,000 cases of the 2005 Woodcutter’s Shiraz. A 100% Shiraz from 10-20-year old vines, aged 12 months in old foudres, this fabulous effort may be the finest inexpensive Shiraz David Powell has yet produced. Blackberry, raspberry, cherry, licorice, and peppery aromas soar from the glass of this full-bodied, opulent, voluptuously-textured wine. Boasting superb purity, length, and intensity, this beauty simply over-delivers, radically changing one’s opinion on what can be purchased for a mere $20 a bottle. It should drink well for 7-8 years." Best 2006-2014

88 points "Ripe and spicy. A plush mouthful of pomegranate, cherry and plum fruit on a polished texture, picking up hints of cardamom and white pepper as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2011. 20,000 cases made. –HS" Best 2006-2011

2.5 stars "Dark color, a sweet berry nose and a full-bodied, smooth palate, leaving a jammy aftertaste of candied fruit. The wine is much too sweet and we much prefered the Henschke Henry's Seven."
