The wine is intensely rich and predominantly fruit driven. The colour is deep cherry red with purple hues and the nose is rich in violets, cherries and plums, with hints of licorice and a dusty smoky oak overtone. The palate explodes with sweet fruit of plums and dark, juicy red berries. It is very well structured with tight and firm tannins, finishing with a rich balanced extract that lingers deliciously.
Professional Reviews

96/100
The Wine Advocate
Made from 100% Shiraz, the massive, full-bodied 1999 Octavius continues the succession of profound efforts from Yalumba. Tremendously rich, intense, and multidimensional, it offers up notes of blackberries, sweet smoke, and melted asphalt.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #148



94/100
Wine Companion
Highly scented, rich, oaky style but with abundant blackberry fruit to carry the oak.
, James Halliday Issue: Oct 2003



86/100
Wine Spectator
A green, almost vegetal note runs through otherwise ripe, spicy flavors, offering cherry and pepper character, remaining fleshy through the finish.
