"Inky colours, opaque purple with red accents. Expressive and forceful aromas, development will reveal delicious herbs that accent a core of dark berry fruit. Polished tannin balances the dominant fruit. Black berries are layered over red, with mocha, liquorice and fresh-cut cedar. Cellaring in the bottle will lead to increased complexity and even greater enjoyment." - Winemaker Notes 

"The 2018 The Eye of Ra Shiraz is wildly aromatic: blood plum, pastrami, cracked peppercorns, clove bud, mountain herbs (alpine mint?), boysenberry, blackberry (actually, every black berry you can name), dark chocolate, squid ink, blueberry, resin and char. In the mouth, the wine is velvety and concentrated, …A galaxy of complexity exists in this glass. It shows the 2018 vintage off to its best effect: ripe, dense, concentrated, fresh and beguiling. Super good." - 98 Points, Erin Larkin, Wine Advocate 

"…The volume of fruit is staggering, but its delivery is incredibly measured and even, and this is the trick. Rã is not a monster wine but a monstrously long wine. …While this icon wine has an iconic flavour, I must urge you to seek it out. Imagine all of Ben’s experience and skill in just one bottle – Rã is it. Drink now – 2040." - 19.5+/20 Points, Matthew Jukes
