No Shiraz Integrity was made in 2004, so the superb 2004 Shiraz 9 includes the wine that would have been earmarked for that flamboyant cuvee. The rich, full-bodied, opulent Shiraz 9 boasts abundant amounts of concentrated blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with smoke, camphor, and tar notes. It is a powerful Shiraz (16% alcohol), so those looking for restraint and delicate European-styled reds should steer clear of this monster. It should drink well for at least a decade. Wine Advocate Very allocated - get some while you can.

This wine is outstanding. Huge berry flavors. Drinks well now but will likely age with increasing complexity. Tragic that the partnership is breaking up. Was originally produced for the US market with Sarah & Sparky Marquis the winemakers. Cheap for the quality.
