Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2006 - #10!
Extremely limited. Deep purple with a black core in colour, the bouquet is rich and powerful with defined hints of fresh currents, cola, intense liquorice and plums, all backed by subtle tar and earth. The palate is thick and mouth coating and displaying free flowing, luschios and obvious flavours of chocolate, liquorice, black fruits and balanced natural sweetness. The highlight of this wine is the dense and confectionary mid palate that then rolls into a powerful and flavoursome end palate that is controlled by trademark Barossa tannins.
