A stunning effort the 2002 Shiraz Command exhibits an inky/blue/purple color as well as a sweet perfume of camphor blueberries blackberries acacia flowers and smoky toasty oak. Full-bodied opulent and viscous with huge but sweet tannin decent acidity and a muscular long 40+ second finish this is a classic potentially long-lived Barossa blockbuster. It's accessible now but ideally needs another 2-4 years of bottle age and should keep for two decades. Imported by USA Wine West San Rafael CA; tel. (800) 485-5753 for John Larchet The Australian Premium Wine Collection.

Powerful almost candied aromas of boysenberry mulberry and dark cherry with subtle hints of smoked meat and cinnamon. Deeply concentrated velvety dark fruit flavors expand to fill every crevice of the palate. Utterly palate-staining finish showcases vivid cherry and cassis fruit with completely buffered plush tannins sneaking in at the very end. 94 points

Rich dense and velvety distinctive for its blueberry boysenberry and spice flavors shaded with subtle cocoa and tar notes lingering beautifully on the subtle generous finish. Best from 2008 through 2015. 1550 cases...
