As a young wine, the fruit and oak are trading blows on a weekly basis. Nice and viscous with tangy acid and chalky tannin working their way through the palate. Pretty good length.

96/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2003 Shiraz Old Bastard is a candidate for Shiraz of the vintage from South Australia. Exhibiting an inky/purple color along with serious velocity and intensity, it is a superb expression of top-notch Barossa Valley Shiraz. A glorious perfume of charcoal, blackberry liqueur, smoke, and vanilla is followed by an enormous, but neither heavy nor over-ripe wine that is a testament to the winemaking skills of Reid Bosward. This is a big, pure and rich Shiraz.

Wine Companion
Dense colour; massively concentrated black fruits, dark chocolate, oak, tannins and the kitchen sink; a heroic Parker style.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Deep, bright ruby. Flamboyantly ripe aromas of singed blackberry, creme de cassis, peppered bacon, mocha, dried rose and oak spices, plus an exotic note of blood orange. Rich, velvety and dense, with sweet, powerful flavors of blackcurrant, fruitcake, fudge, vanilla and black olive, all lifted by a floral top note. Finishes long and sweet, with fully enveloped tannins.
