    Winemaker's Notes:

    It has plenty of spicy piquancy, from its oak, but theres no chance of that carpentry getting much of a say in. Kahluaand licorice, plum liqueur, Cherry Heering and deep framboise and cassis liqueur swim lazily about in itsincredibly intense bouquet; theres even that wicked black smell of freshly-polished Spanish leather, like greattempranillo. The palate is an unctuous anointing oil from some heavenly religion not yet invented.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2005 Alice's Shiraz spent 28 months in seasoned American oak hogsheads. Aromas of smoke, asphalt, meat, game, truffle, and blueberry soar from the glass. On the palate this full-bodied Shiraz is velvety-textured, layered, spicy, and richly fruity. While not quite as riveting as the 2004 edition, it has enough structure to evolve for several years and should drink well through 2025.

    The Wine Advocate

    Dense, chewy and distinctive for its chocolate-scented plum and blackberry flavors that linger on the open-textured finish as the tannins seem to lighten up. Has a peppery, minty note on the finish.
