I kept this wine open for a whopping five days without a trace of oxidation. I finally asked myself what in the world I was doing, and drank the rest of the bottle.

I felt I needed a seat belt when I tasted this wine. Made from only 8-year old vines, and remarkably civilized at 14.8% alcohol, this wine, which held up for almost a week without any traces of oxidation, boasts an opaque purple color, and a splendidly sweet, rich nose of blackberry liqueur, cherries, cassis, tar, and pepper. Only 25% new oak was utilized in the aging process, but that is not even discernable given the wine's extraordinary richness and purity of fruit. Layers of viscously-textured fruit cascade over the palate with precision and purity. This is a fabulous, nearly perfect Shiraz that should age effortlessly for two decades or more. This is a massive, opulently-textured, extraordinary wine.
