Cape Barren Shiraz Reserve. Blewitt Sprgs Vyd 2005

External Review by WineExpress.com:

The grapes for this Reserve Shiraz are sourced from a vineyard in Blewitt Springs whose vines are 70 years old. That very dense and concentrated fruit makes deeply extracted , intense wine with layers of complexity. The Wine Advocate scored it 93 points and said "The 2005 Shiraz “Old Vine” is opaque purple with a superb bouquet of espresso, mocha, pencil lead, plum, and blueberry. This leads to a full-bodied, full-throttle, layered wine with great depth of flavor, with notes of star anise and blackberry liqueur making an appearance. The wine is beautifully integrated and has 5-7 years of aging potential. Drink this lengthy Shiraz through 2025." On SALE!!
