Wow! The thickly layered nose, full of surprises over four hours, opens to black raspberries, oak, smoke, and a changing mélange of floral aromas. At one hour, add cherries, minerals, faint blueberries, and black pepper. At three hours, the aromatic complexity increases again to include currant, licorice, curry, vanilla, violet, honeysuckle, and rust, intermingling with wafts of deep, rich cherry, faint cinnamon, baby powder and dark chocolate. The nose on this gorgeous wine continues to evolve, creating harmonious combinations with variations on each theme. The palate is equally epicurean, hosting decadent combinations of dark fruits and spices in ever-changing blends. Intermittent notes of black raspberry, apricot, cherry, licorice, berry cobbler, and black pepper decorate the spectacular fare offered up like a five-course meal with trays of choices changing at each offering. The tannins are subtle participants in the evolving display, and a delightfully balanced acidity helps move the medleys along, sustaining each with a warm spotlight until the lengthy, succulent fade ushers one set off and brings in another right behind.

Am Gaumen spielen diese Aromen aufs Neue, eingebettet in einen tiefen, dichten, komplexen und sagenhaft ausbalancierten Geschmack. Sein Finale gestaltet sich weich und lang. Der Elderton Barossa Valley Command Shiraz 2005 reifte 34 Monate in amerikanischen und französischen Hogsheads.

97 Points - The Wine Advocate"Eldertons flagship is the single vineyard Command Shiraz, a wine with serious aging potential, and one with which all other South Australia Shiraz must be compared. The opaque purple/black 2005 Command Shiraz was aged in French and American oak puncheons (500-liter barrels). It offers up a sexy/kinky bouquet of wood smoke, lavender, leather, game, mineral, black raspberry, and blueberry pie. Voluptuous on the palate, complex, and dense, it demands a decade of cellaring after which it should offer hedonists much pleasure through 2035. "94 Points - Wine Spectator"Firm in texture, with beautifully poised blackberry, licorice and pepper flavors that seem to hover weightlessly over fine tannins, lingering enticingly on the long, expressive finish. Best from 2011 through 2017. 1,400 cases imported. "94 Points - International Wine Cellar"Inky ruby color. Vibrant raspberry, cherry-vanilla and coconut aromas are complemented by candied licorice and smoky minerals. Pliant, palate-coating red and dark berry preserve flavors are perked up by Asian spices and smoky minerals. Pretty exotic but not over the top, with gentle tannins adding shape and focus to the long, sweet finish. This is downright sexy today."90 Points - James Halliday"Lavish 34 months in American (dominant) and French oak has resulted in an army greatcoat of oak wrapped around the undeniably good fruit, the latter giving the palate length."
