 Tasted by galewskj on 7/27/2015 & rated 89 points: I brought this to a party with many non-wine friends. I found this to be typical Australian shiraz, relatively mellow and round but still quite fruity. Others liked it a lot more, probably for the flashy fruit. (194 views)

 Tasted by lkatz on 4/20/2014 & rated 90 points: great flavor...has lots of life left in it (2824 views)
 Tasted by Ridgerunner on 3/23/2014 & rated 93 points: Great in its infancy! Many years to go! (2820 views)
 Tasted by themki on 2/12/2014 & rated 94 points: Intoxicating aroma. Blueberry, chocolate, and sweet oak. Rich and delicious finish - perfect drinking now (2376 views)
 Tasted by gmbdds on 2/12/2014 & rated 88 points: Less fruit forward than expected. Lots of roasted meat and syrah funk notes. Yes, it's too hot and the fruit that is there is ripe, but this had more varietal character than I anticipated. (2531 views)
 Tasted by Alex H on 1/30/2014 & rated 86 points: Caramel and sweet honeyed popcorn on the nose. Palate is balanced blue and purple berries with a rounded finish. (2113 views)
 Tasted by Ex-Ray on 1/17/2014 & rated 92 points: Fully mature, if not slightly beyond. Still purple and completely opaque. Flavors a bit overripe and some sweetness, slightly prune. Very full-bodied, moderate but soft tannin. Sweet oaky aftertaste. I think this wine was better a couple of years ago and should now be consumed.

 Tasted by smphelps on 12/24/2013 & rated 88 points: Deep dark purple. Bold, rich, heavy, full bodied, jammy, etc. Need to be in the mood and not your everyday offering. Chocolate covered blackberries and blueberries. Soft tannins finishing on the sweet side. (1575 views)
 Tasted by vanpe003 on 9/17/2013 & rated 93 points: Big, rich, smooth, resolved. For me, and this night, drinking very well. Not an everyday wine for me in terms of styling, but I knew what I was looking for, had this several times before, and it performed as expected tonight. One of those "it's all about time and place" evenings. (2469 views)
 Tasted by robrats on 8/24/2013 & rated 90 points: A basic Shiraz. Pretty good with some spice on the palate. (2309 views)

 Tasted by Nils1921 on 3/29/2013: 3/12 16% alcohol ... Poured and at first not drinkable. Settled down after 30 minutes. No tannins. Smooth w dark fruit, intense. The high alcohol gets in way of fruit bomb. (3469 views)
 Tasted by carstenf on 3/8/2013 & rated 85 points: Just too much of everything...Fruit , Alcohol. Nowadays I prefer a lot of other wines and just
a bit tired about those fruitbombs....They lack harmony and elegance. (3155 views)
 Tasted by Harry Cantrell on 12/28/2012 & rated 86 points: Black. Nose was a Shiraz wanting to be prune juice. Taste was OTT for me, but liked by a few. (3501 views)
 Tasted by Wino from Michigan on 12/21/2012 & rated 91 points: Very high alcohol and obvious when opened - after an hour it blew off mostly but this it is still an over the top Syrah -- a bit too bombastic for me. (3272 views)
 Tasted by michelvl on 12/2/2012 & rated 96 points: Consistent with my previous reviews. (3348 views)
 Tasted by Winecat on 10/13/2012 & rated 82 points: Just too much fruit and nothing else. no complexity. Disappointing for the price. Drinking this bottle as a port thinking of it that way makes it more enjoyable. (3036 views)
 Tasted by Chris Herron on 7/19/2012: Excellent. Very young. Overly powerful, but promises to be balanced with some age. Loads of fruits and tannins. Tasted May/June 2012. (3822 views)
 Tasted by Christoffer78 on 7/13/2012 & rated 92 points: The 2007 Blue Eyed Boy provided the same crazy and utterly fully-packed feeling as always. Paired to a 2007 Carnival of Love the BEB is actually subtle and elegant. But with a "slightly" different connotation to elegant than you are used to. (3656 views)
 Tasted by michelvl on 7/1/2012 & rated 96 points: Consistent with my previous notes. (3318 views)
