The Wine Advocate
It is hard to find a more compelling red than Henschke's 1998 Shiraz Hill of Grace. Made from 100% Shiraz (from vines averaging 52-144 years of age), and aged in primarily new American and French oak for 18 months, it is unquestionably profound. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by a gorgeous perfume of blackberries, graphite, and subtle wood. Dense and full-bodied yet extraordinarily well-defined and layered, it remains young and backward, with tremendous potential. It is the finest Hill of Grace I have ever passed over my palate and down the gullet.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #148

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Bright red-ruby. Explosive if idiosyncratic aromas of tobacco, pepper, black olive, mocha and hot stones. Pungent and penetrating, with compelling flavors of raspberry, tobacco, black olive, dried rose, mocha, herbs and spices, plus a strong underlying minerality . Suave and perfumed in the mouth; wonderfully ripe but dry. Finishes with noble tannins and great palate-staining length and grip. This wine is not for everyone-and a good thing, too, since it's extremely limited-but it certainly flipped my switch.
ST, Stephen Tanzer Issue: Aug 1 2004



96/100
Wine Companion
Medium to full purple-red; a clean and rich array of black berries, spice, licorice and compatible oak, then a palate with abundant dark berry and bitter chocolate flavour, with controlled tannins and oak. Has great length and great balance; fully reflects the outstanding vintage, and has an indefinite life in front of it if well-cellared.
, James Halliday Issue: Feb 2003



93/100
Wine Spectator
A rambunctious wine, brimming with personality. Round and earthy, with a distinct barnyard note that cuts through the rich black cherry, blackberry and leathery, leafy, almost rustic flavors that persist on the finish. Has wonderful fruit, but the gamy notes are a bit of a warning flag.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Sep 30 2003



18.5/20
Jancis Robinson
Still quite purple and youthful-looking. Intense, ripe, briary nose with some notes of a decongestant. Quite high-toned with decided lift. A real baby with extraordinary amounts of tannin tucked in beneath satin-smooth overlay of carefully vinified fruit. Very fine tannins and a very dry finish.
