Elderton's flagship is the single vineyard Command Shiraz a wine with serious aging potential and one with which all other South Australia Shiraz must be compared. The opaque purple/black 2005 Command Shiraz was aged in French and American oak puncheons (500-liter barrels). It offers up a sexy/kinky bouquet of wood smoke lavender leather game mineral black raspberry and blueberry pie. Voluptuous on the palate complex and dense it demands a decade of cellaring after which it should offer hedonists much pleasure through 2035.

Firm in texture with beautifully poised blackberry licorice and pepper flavors that seem to hover weightlessly over fine tannins lingering enticingly on the long expressive finish. Best from 2011 through 2017. 1400 cases...

Vibrant raspberry cherry-vanilla and coconut aromas are complemented by candied licorice and smoky minerals. Pliant palate-coating red and dark berry preserve flavors are perked up by Asian spices and smoky minerals. Pretty exotic but not over the top with gentle tannins adding shape and focus to the long sweet finish. This is downright sexy today. 94 points
