73% Shiraz, 15% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Deep Black Purple. Intense aromas of blackcurrent, Stewed plums, Cherry, and chocolate. Full bodied berry palate with a sweet long lasting finish.
Serve with anything-Meat, cheese especially.
"Bright purple. Fresh blackberry and blackcurrant aromas are expansive and strikingly energetic. A deeply concentrated blend, offering sweet, sappy black and blue fruit flavors and refreshing spicy snap. The spiciness builds with air and carries through the persistent, floral-accented finish, which features silky tannins.
International Wine Cellar
"A blend of 73% Shiraz, 15% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, Tait’s 2009 The Ball Buster provides a deep garnet color and aromas of blackberry preserves, prunes, mulberries and dried leaves with nuances of Indian spices and dusty earth. Full bodied and rich in the mouth, it has a high level of acid providing freshness to the generous fruit and a medium-firm level of grainy tannins, finish long with lingering notes of anise. Drinking now, it should remain good to 2015+."
The Wine Advocate
Earthy & Spicy
This is the best Ball Buster in the last three years. Minerality with the fruit on the front end, with a very good, lasting finish. Only had one so far, will add later.
