Silky tannins and rich flavors add up to an arresting wine a seductive Shiraz that oozes with rich cherry plum exotic spice and meat flavors that linger against grace notes of chocolate and espresso. Delicious stuff and it's built to last. Drink now through 2020. 600 cases imported. (HS)

The 2001 Shiraz Command exhibits a slightly more roasted character than the 2002 as well as a hint of espresso in the nose a touch more alcohol and more elevated tannin. It also possesses tremendous concentration intensity and power yet remains remarkably well-balanced and pure. This 3000-case cuvee is one of South Australia’s great classics. It should drink well for 15 years.

Smoky and meaty scents of dark cherry plum and ripe blackcurrant. Sappy and thick on the palate the intense cherry flavor intriguingly accented by notes of fresh bay juniper pipe tobacco and licorice candy. This has excellent concentration and a fat unctuous texture. Finishes with outstanding length and superb energy and lift with vibrant bitter cherry and cassis flavors going on and on. 93 points
