Charles Cimicky Shiraz Barossa Valley Autograph 2005

External Review by Sam's Wine:

The 2005 Shiraz ?Autograph? spent 17 months in 60% new American oak. The wine is a glass-coating purple with room-filling aromas of cedar, mocha, cocoa, blueberry, and black currant liqueur. This leads to a medium to full-bodied, opulent wine with layers of ripe black and blue fruits, soft tannins, and excellent length. Allow 4-6 years of evolution in the cellar and drink this well-made Shiraz through 2025. Founded in 1973, the winery is now run by Charles Cimicky who succeeded his father at the helm.
