Deep Black Purple. Intense aromas of blackcurrent, stewed plums, cherry, and chocolate. Full-bodied berry palate with a sweet long lasting finish.
The Ball Buster blend has been an annual Best Buy and, even at the current asking price, the 2007 The Ball Buster is an awesome value (at least for hedonists). It is composed of 72% Shiraz, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 11% Merlot aged for 12 months in seasoned French and American oak. Opaque purple-colored, it has a nose of cedar, leather, spice box, and blueberry that leaps from the glass. This is followed by a plush, full-bodied wine with gobs of flavor and superior length. This easy-to-understand effort defines the meaning of over-delivering and will do so for another four years.
Ruby-red. Spicy red and dark berry aromas are deepened by licorice and pungent herbs. Sharply focused raspberry and cassis flavors are firmed by fine-grained tannins and gain sweetness with air. Nothing outsized here-I can't help but notice that the name doesn't really fit. Finishes with very good energy.
