    Winemaker's Notes:

    Long term maturation and 12 months bottle age prior to release, make this quality wine complex and balanced with a long term cellaring potential.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A stunning effort, the 2002 Shiraz Command exhibits an inky/blue/purple color as well as a sweet perfume of camphor, blueberries, blackberries, acacia flowers, and smoky, toasty oak. Full-bodied, opulent, and viscous, with huge, but sweet tannin, decent acidity, and a muscular, long, 40+ second finish, this is a classic, potentially long-lived, Barossa blockbuster. It's accessible now, but ideally needs another 2-4 years of bottle age, and should keep for two decades.

    Good colour; excellent focus, balance and length; blackberry fruit with lashings of dark chocolate and spice; ripe tannins, controlled oak.

    Inky ruby. Powerful, almost candied aromas of boysenberry, mulberry and dark cherry, with subtle hints of smoked meat and cinnamon. Deeply concentrated, velvety dark fruit flavors expand to fill every crevice of the palate. Utterly palate-staining finish showcases vivid cherry and cassis fruit, with completely buffered, plush tannins sneaking in at the very end.

    94 Points
    International Wine Cellar

    Rich, dense and velvety, distinctive for its blueberry, boysenberry and spice flavors, shaded with subtle cocoa and tar notes, lingering beautifully on the subtle, generous finish.
