Elderton Command Barossa Valley 2001

Member Review by Wai Xin Chan:

Dark purplish core with pinkish hue marked the end of the night with a much youthful wine. Excellent integration of bright acid and good tannins. However the nose felt like sweet raisins, chocolate and lastly, almost port-like. Not complex like an aged wine. Good powerful Oz style, but not something for everyone.

The 2001 Shiraz Command exhibits a slightly more roasted character than the 2002 as well as a hint of espresso in the nose, a touch more alcohol, and more elevated tannin. It also possesses tremendous concentration, intensity, and power, yet remains remarkably well-balanced and pure. This 3,000-case cuvee is one of South Australiarsquo;s great classics. It should drink well for 15 years.

Silky tannins and rich flavors add up to an arresting wine, a seductive Shiraz that oozes with rich cherry, plum, exotic spice and meat flavors that linger against grace notes of chocolate and espresso. Delicious stuff, and itrsquo;s built to last. Drink now through 2020.

The 1994 Command Shiraz is slightly higher in alcohol (14.5% as opposed to the 1995's 14%). It possesses the same characteristics - massive fruit extraction, tons of new American oak, low acidity, and layers of chewy, glycerin-imbued, concentrated fruit. It should drink well for another decade. I suspect both wines will become more civilized and less exuberant with bottle age.

The 1996 Command Shiraz is a bigger, fuller, more powerful offering. While its aromas and flavors are similar to the 1997, there is more to it. A muscular, powerful version of the 1997, it requires another 1-2 years of cellaring, given its robust personality. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2018.
