    Winemaker's Notes:

    Very dark purple with bright magenta hues. The nose shows lashings of chocolate, violet and delicious cedar. On the palate it is rich and generous; the wine has wondrous dark chocolate, plums and black pepper flavours that persist through to a fleshy finish. It is held together beautifully with refinement and amazing focus.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Ripe and brooding, not a dense or heavy wine, but dark with black cherry, licorice, dark chocolate and wet earth flavors. This is complex and lingers easily on the open-textured finish. Best from 2012 through 2018.

    The 2006 Shiraz Command is a glass-coating opaque purple. Aromas of scorched earth, pencil lead, sandalwood, meat blood, game, and blueberry are followed by a dense, voluptuous, layered Shiraz with tons of flavor. Impeccably balanced and concealing enough structure for 5-7 years of cellaring, it will offer a drinking window extending from 2015 to 2026.

    Good colour; quite a restrained and elegant bouquet, showing more red fruit than black, and a little fruitcake spice; the palate is fresh and vibrant with toasty oak seamlessly framing the fruit; a long and harmonious finish with chewy tannins and fresh acidity.

    Glass-staining ruby-red. Exotically perfumed bouquet of blackberry, boysenberry, cherry-vanilla, cola and incense. A lot of oak spice here but there's also a load of powerful, deeply concentrated dark fruit. Velvety in texture, with strong finishing spiciness and lingering dark berry liqueur qualities. Nothing subtle about this, but it's improbably graceful and focused.
