IWC 95
Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, July 2002
Very dense purple-red color. Heady fragrant deeply spicy aromas of musky brambly dark berries and plum complemented but not overwhelmed by oak tones of chocolate and smoked oyster.

Heady fragrant deeply spicy aromas of musky brambly dark berries and plum complemented but not overwhelmed by oak tones of chocolate and smoked oyster. Really saturated with dark fruit flavor with the wine fruit perfectly supported by suave new French oak and fine astringent tannins. Exceptionally long on the finish. As supple and harmonious as it is opulent and assertive. Another step in the ongoing evolution of Barossa shiraz.

Texture is firm but not overly so. It... Lithe and appealing for its range of flavors this fascinating wine has dark plum and berry at the core and mint leather peach-fuzz and exotic spice notes sneaking in around the edges. Texture is firm but not overly so. It all adds up to an aristocratic red as the flavors sail on and on. Drink now through 2010. 3500 cases made.

Starts off tight showing refined cedar aromas then explodes with a few minutes' air to yield lush blackberries and vanilla. The lush rich mouthfeel carries the blackberry vanilla and chocolate flavors effortlessly across the palate into a long toasty finish. This thoroughly modern-style wine should drink well over the next 12 years or so.
