A puzzle. An excellent wine with an excellent reputation from an excellent vintage, but one that we felt didnrsquo;t quite live up to some of its past incarnations. Has aromas of plum, raspberry, vanilla and oak, with many of the same notes reprising on the palate. As good as it is, therersquo;s something missing this year. Tasted twice; note reflects the higher score.

A cooperative founded in 1985 by local growers, Barossa Valley Estate excels with Shiraz. Eamp;E Black Pepper is the flagship wine, made only from vines 60 or more years of age. Cool weather in 2002 left some Barossa reds excessively crisp, but BVE made a classic, achieving its highest score ever; itrsquo;s a profound wine with muscular tannins and intense fruit.

Dark, juicy and profound, with layer upon layer of flavor seamlessly knit into a cohesive whole, offering dark berry, black cherry, exotic spice, black pepper and licorice that sail through the long, vivid finish. Has tremendous style, intensity and a long life ahead of it. Best from 2010 through 2022.

Bright, round and juicy. A gorgeous mouthful of cherry, blackberry and floral flavors, lingering on the finish with a touch of dark expresso to add interest. The tannins are polished, and the wine has a keen sense of balance, grace and harmony. Drink now through 2015.

Fir tree, orange liqueur and meaty aromas; the palate offers a veneer of vanilla enveloping raspberry, plum and chocolate flavors. Not as lush as some of the older wines; feels crisp and lively in the mouth. Cranberry flavors punctuate a crisp finish.

Dense, dark and powerful, a mightly mouthful of black pepper-scented black cherry, stewed plum and licorice flavors that echo beautifully on the long, fine-grained finish. Somehow it finds an elegant balance in the end. Best after 2005.

Are you taken in by the glow of the color, by the vast and mighty Shiraz spice, by the yum factor? Go ahead, try to be a critic, to dismiss it as a Port, to pass over the delicious flavor of berries so ripe theyrsquo;re falling off the vine. So what if it is ripe as a Port? Itrsquo;s vibrant, the alcohol is completely integrated, and the wine is delicious. The tannins are smooth as chocolate, the flavors lasting, lifted, continuing to give long after each sip. Itrsquo;s a luxury. Treat yourself.
