Committed vinfanticide this past weekend on this bottle. I'm not usually a fan of Aussie Shiraz, but this was really good. The nose started off with a bit of heat, dark berries, and an almost overwhelming smell of lumber yard and Vicks Vaporub...in a nice way. Later this settled out to reveal more subtle aromas of cherries, orange peel/marmalade, coffee, chocolate and vanilla. On the palate it's a huge monster of a wine but the rich concentrated fruit is balanced off nicely with acidity and tannin, more gracefully than I would have expected in a wine with 16% alcohol! Even in its youth, there are no hard angles on this wine. The wine sails on into the distance with a lingering creamy, chocolatey finish. Really nice on night 1 with only a splash decant, night two was rounder and more complex on the nose, and finally last night the last dregs were still singing.
