Elderton Shiraz Command Barossa 1998

Member Review by 97edwardc:

This was outstanding. Decanted for 2 1/2 hours, which I think is a must because the last bottle which I popped and poured (not recommended!) was not nearly as good. This one had a beautiful nose of raspberries followed by a full and silky mouthfeel with super-rich berries and stone fruit - smooth tannins and strong but not overwhelming acidity. But the finish - that's what's amazing. A super-extended 90 second plus finish. Outstanding.
