The wine is a seamless fusion of two varieties, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. An intriguing nose of chocolate, crushed herbs, cedar, blackberries and smoke leads into a tightly focused palate with fine-granied tannin and incredible density. The finish is fresh and lively, with flavours that linger. The 2005 is very similar to the 2004 although as with Amon-Ra, the 2005 Godolphin is a little larger and will take a little longer to fully integrate. The Cabernet component in the 2005 showed higher blackcurrant and cassis notes than the 2004 making the wine appear slightly more aromatic.
Professional Reviews

95/100
Wine Companion
Deep purple-red; achieves lusciousness, length and intensity of flavour without resorting to excessive alcohol; great balance and mouthfeel; very good length and equally well-balanced oak.
, James Halliday Issue: Jan 2007



94/100
Wine Spectator
Ripe, round and decadent, plush in texture, oozing with tarry, chocolaty plum and black cherry flavors that linger beautifully. Picks up all kinds of spicy notes as the finish goes on and on. Should only get deeper with age.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Sep 15 2004



93/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2005 Godolphin, a blend of 80% Shiraz (from 85-year-old vines) and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon (from 60-year-old vines), was aged in 100% new oak, primarily 300-liter French hogsheads. It represents a beautiful marriage of power and elegance, displaying an inky/blue/purple color as well as notions of black raspberries, blueberries, graphite, and sweet pain grille. Ripe, pure, and medium to full-bodied with sweet but noticeable tannin.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #167

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Dark purple. The nose offers an explosively aromatic array of sexy red and dark berry scents accompanied by vanilla, sandalwood, cola and baking spices. Precise blackberry and boysenberry flavors reach every nook and cranny of the palate and seem to gain energy on the finish. Extremely appealing, suave and fresh, offering a striking melange of bright and ripe qualities.
ST, Josh Raynolds Issue: Aug 1 2007

Some evolution on the nose – well balanced. Very sweet – too much so. Unless it is being sold deliberately as a ripasso?!
