Smooth and generous, laden with a range of sweet spices, including cassis and anise, with hints of caramel against ripe plum flavors on the finish. Drink now through 2013.

The enormously endowed, ostentatious, yet captivating 2002 Shiraz 9 is a sexy effort. There are 1,500 cases of this blockbuster. Its inky plum/purple color is followed by sumptuous aromas of creme de cassis, blackberry liqueur, smoked meats, and toasty American oak (from aging in 100% new American barrels). Opulent, viscous, and thick, this succulent Shiraz is meant to offer immediate appeal. It should last for 7-8 years, becoming more civilized and measured with additional age.

The blockbuster 2001 Shiraz 9 (aged in 100% American oak for 12 months prior to bottling) boasts an opaque inky/blue/purple color as well as a stunning bouquet of melted licorice intermixed with crème de cassis, blackberries, white chocolate, and pepper. It possesses great flavor intensity, marvelous purity, and superb definition for such a sexy, opulent, blockbuster Shiraz fruit bomb. There is plenty of tannin under the wealth of glycerin and fruit, but this is a wine to enjoy now and over the next 12-15 years.

No Shiraz Integrity was made in 2004, so the superb 2004 Shiraz 9 includes the wine that would have been earmarked for that flamboyant cuvee. The rich, full-bodied, opulent Shiraz 9 boasts abundant amounts of concentrated blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with smoke, camphor, and tar notes. It is a powerful Shiraz (16% alcohol), so those looking for restraint and delicate European-styled reds should steer clear of this monster. It should drink well for at least a decade.

U.S. importer Dan Phillips and Australian winemakers Sparky and Sarah Marquis are turning heads with their new label, whose roster includes some lower-priced wines and this blockbuster Shiraz. It's so big and heady it's almost a caricature of Aussie Shiraz, but ultimately stays in bounds. Ripe and dense, it has a distinctive note reminiscent of exotic spices, mingling with rich blackberry jam flavors, which resonate on the smoky finish. Drink now through 2008.

Bright and generous, with a spicy mouthful of blackberry, huckleberry and white pepper flavors that linger effortlessly on the racy finish. Drink now through 2014.

The 2006 Shiraz 9 was tasted from a barrel sample. It has been barrel-fermented in new French and American oak barriques and hogsheads where it has been aging for 14 months (with another 2 months to go prior to bottling). It delivers an alluring bouquet of pain grille, smoke, mocha, espresso, and blue fruits. This is followed by a full-bodied, personality-filled Shiraz with blueberry, blackberry liqueur, licorice, and a hint of chocolate emerging on the palate. Opulent, sweet, and lengthy, it will evolve for several years but can be enjoyed now and over the next 12-15 years.
