Aged 28 months in neutral French oak and bottled without filtration this is a spectacular effort. An opaque purple color accompanies fabulous aromas of creosote blackberry liqueur melted licorice and truffles. This layered opulently-textured extremely concentrated 1999 possesses low acidity spectacular fruit purity and massive palate presence. This is not for readers looking for understated restrained European-inspired reds. It is a classic Barossa Valley nearly over the top Shiraz fruit bomb. Dan Standish who has worked for David Powell of Torbreck fame produced this Shiraz from 87-year old vines. Anticipated maturity: now-2015.Importer: Benjamin Hammerschlag Epicurean Wines Seattle WA; tel. (206) 923-1376
