92 points "The outstanding 2004 Shiraz Shotfire Ridge is an excellent value. A full-throttle, dense, full-bodied Shiraz, it boasts a purple color as well as big, sweet, flamboyant aromatics of white chocolate, blackberries, cassis, smoke, and licorice. This deep, opulent effort is a total hedonistic turn-on. Drink it over the next 3-4 years." Best 2005-2009

91 points "Rich and plush, with lots of spicy, creamy oak around a plump core of cherry and black olive flavors that linger enticingly on the finish. Drink now through 2012. 12,000 cases made. (HS)" Best 2006-2012
