Winemaker's Notes

"The 2006 Shiraz (75%) – Cabernet Sauvignon (25%) "Anaperenna" is the wine formerly known as Godolphin, the change resulting from a trademark dispute. It was aged for 15 months in new French and American oak. Opaque purple, it offers a sensational bouquet of pain grille, scorched earth, meat, game, blueberry, and black currants. This is followed by a surprisingly elegant yet powerful, structured wine with gobs of spicy fruit, ripe tannins, and a plush texture. The long, 60-second finish is succulent and sweet. Give this classy wine 4-6 years in the cellar and enjoy it through 2030. Hats off to Ben Glaetzer for producing an extraordinary portfolio! The renowned winemaker, Ben Glaetzer, sources all of his fruit for this label from the Ebenezer district in the northern Barossa. Many knowledgeable experts cite this sub-region as the finest in the Valley."
-Wine Advocate 94-97

"Densely packed blackberry, blackcurrant and plum fruit with ripe, plush tannins woven throughout, plus scoops of vanilla and chocolate. Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon."
-James Halliday

This is a big wine that must breathe. I guess you could decant it. Would be excellent for a tapas party, as it can stand on its own.
