Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2005!
"This one is the best wine we have made under the Shiraz label, being a similar vintage to the 2001. The key to Forefathers is balance and complexity with underlying power. On the palate the wine is firm, textural and viscous. The long silky mouth makes the wine drink beautifully now, and will improve over the next five years. In 2003 we had very low yields culminating in big pepper spice flavors and very supple tannins. A wine that will be hard to have only one glass!" - Nick Goldschmidt Winemaker
