    Winemaker's Notes:

    #54 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

    The wine has a deep center with a dark red rim. The bouquet shows lashings of classical Barossa Shiraz chocolate and plum aromas, given a gentle life from the well seasoned French oak notes. It is a robustly structured wine, with a mouth-filling, generous fruit clothing its firm muscularity. It finishes firm with powdery tannins. It is a fine example of Barossa Shiraz from a top vintage year.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Ripe and round, this is generous with its smoky cherry and black currant flavors, persisting against mildly grippy tannins to create a long, layered finish. Best from 2010 through 2016. 26,400 cases imported.

    The product of an excellent vintage, with clear blackberry and plum varietal fruit doing the talking. Screwcap.

    A nice, full-bodied shiraz at a great price. It's become our house red wine.

    Mmmmmm. Excellent Aussie Shiraz, beautifully crafted. This is big and round. Smokey spice, with a wonderfully long finish. I've ordered another case for my cellar - but don't think I'll have the strength to hold off long enough for this to reach its peak.

    A little too bitter, but should smooth out if aged. Earthy, smoky aroma with hints of tobacco; medium body with robust flavors of black berries, oak, and pepper.

    Don't get me wrong...if you ARE looking for a basic table wine (much like the other comment), it is well worth it. For me, I think there are better options out there that reach beyond this table wine status. 14.5% was surprisingly balanced, but I thought the finish was unremarkable. Could you grab something with more flavor, aroma, and "intensely concentrated fruits" (as the bottle states) at your local store? - You bet. That said, it is what it is, and if you are looking for a basic table red, throw down the credit card.
