No Shiraz Integrity was made in 2004, so the superb 2004 Shiraz 9 includes the wine that would have been earmarked for that flamboyant cuvee. The rich, full-bodied, opulent Shiraz 9 boasts abundant amounts of concentrated blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with smoke, camphor, and tar notes. It is a powerful Shiraz (16% alcohol), so those looking for restraint and delicate European-styled reds should steer clear of this monster. It should drink well for at least a decade. Wine Advocate Very allocated - get some while you can.
Deep ruby. Explosive aromas of dark cherry preserves, plum, blackberry, smoked meat, espresso and baking spices. Dense and sweet, with vibrant, powerful dark berry flavors and a creamy, lush texture. Finishes with very persistent, sweet boysenberry, and spice notes of cinnamon and mace. A serious but seductive and suave shiraz that's drinking well right now.
Deep garnet-black in color, the 2004 Shiraz 9 shows off a very ripe and rich nose loaded with prunes and grilled duck notes alongside touches of coffee, figs and mincemeat. Ripe, rich and spicy, it is concentrated, over-ripe and a little hard in the mouth and finishes long with big, bold, layered and spicy flavors.
Bright and generous, with a spicy mouthful of blackberry, huckleberry and white pepper flavors that linger effortlessly on the racy finish.
