Wine Advocate October, 2005 A spectacular effort, the 2002 Shiraz The Octavius (100% old vine Shiraz aged 22 months in both French and American wood) is a noteworthy successor to the phenomenal 2001 released last year. Aromas of figs, chocolate, blackberry and cassis liqueur, roasted meats, and barbecue spice emerge from this hugely extracted, full-bodied monster. Reminiscent of some Grange Hermitage cuvees from the early seventies, it is a wine of supreme quality, with a singular personality as well as 20-25 years of aging potential.
