Seamless, rich and intense are among the words tasters used to describe this complex wine with its tart-sweet fruit, cedar, smoke, coffee and brown-sugar profile. The even, full mouthfeel is seductively lovely, as is the long, tangy, roasted fruit and toasted coconut finish. Already nicely evolved, this pleasure package is a keeper that will last ages.
Tasted alongside other South Australian Cabs, this one is distinguished by its restraint and elegance. The nose has a nice briary quality; the palate has well-integrated tannins, and flavors of red fruit and eucalyptus. Medium in body, and very juicy through the long finish. Drink now–2013.
For the first time, Shadrach is a 100% Barossa wine, although most of the fruit is from higher elevation vineyards in the Eden Valley. Coffee, tobacco, cassis and chocolate aromas and flavors give this a decadent profile, but it retains Cabernet’s aristocratic structure. It’s round and rich, yet firmly built, picking up tea-like notes on the lengthy finish. Drink…
Gorgeous on the nose: clove, tree bark, black pepper and fruit that is still hibernating. On the palate, it’s sexy and layered, with meat accents to the plum fruit and a silky texture that trails on through the long, nut-laden finish. Nice now, but it’s still young. Drink 2007–2012. Imported by Wilson Daniels Ltd.
Elegantly combines plenty of spicy, meaty notes with round, ripe cherry-berry fruit. Dark flavors of soy or oyster sauce impart a savory element, adding a bass note to the finely tuned chorus of flavors. Finishes long and velvety. Drink now–2016.
This full-bodied, creamy-textured Shiraz from the Lyndoch subregion of the Barossa starts off with vanilla, raspberries and a dusting of confectioner’s sugar, but turns darker and more savory with air, adding dark berry and hickory notes. The long finish is richly textured, yet simultaneously marked by crisp acids.
The blend is 40% Grenache, 35% Shiraz and 25% Mourvèdre, and the result is a compelling mix of dark, plummy fruit with brighter hints of raspberry, liniment and dried spices. It’s full bodied and creamy in texture, finishing long and lush with hints of clove and coffee. While approachable now, this wine’s track record for aging suggests it should evolve through at…
Nose has fern, mint, black cherry and earth aromas. Juicy black plum is on center stage, with the taut, red Coonawarra fruit in the background. Just the right size—bold, but not overpowering. An excellent Cab, though in short supply in the U.S.
