While the deep plum/ruby/garnet-tinged 2003 Shiraz Command is slightly less nuanced than the 2002 it is just as powerful and full-bodied offering copious quantities of fruit glycerin tannin and muscle. This chewy rich offering appears to be on a faster evolutionary track than its 2002 counterpart. Give it another 2-3 years of bottle age and consume it over the following 12-15.

Big ripe and generous. This is a plush mouthful of cherry spice and mineral flavors that rush on the finish managing to stay in perfect balance. Has depth and grace. Best from 2009 through 2018. 1100 cases imported. –HS

Rich oak-spicy nose shows liqueur-like boysenberry candied plum and kirsch aromas plus a good whack of vanilla. Outsized and thick with dense sweet dark berry flavors and an almost viscous texture. And yet this massive wine comes across as energetic and surprisingly elegant. The long sappy finish features powerful dark berry liqueur flavors that won't quit.
