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.

Parker 98 The 2004 Shiraz Command comes from a single block of 104-year-old vines. It was aged in 100% new oak puncheons (400 liter barrels). Opaque purple-colored this Shiraz has fabulous aromatics of smoke melted tar licorice espresso game and blueberry compote. Layered but tight this full-bodied wine is thick rich and totally hedonistic. The finish lasts for 60 seconds. However be warned. This monumental Shiraz needs 10-15 years to fully unfold. It will provide pleasure through 2035.

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.

Big and powerful, brimming with tarry, spicy black cherry, dark plum, blackberry and chocolate flavors. Rich and gooey like a warm flourless chocolate cake, yet it finds a plush balance that keeps it from veering off into heaviness. This has grace, harmony and refinement, without losing an ounce of power. Drink now through 2025.

The classic 2000 Command Shiraz (aged nearly three years in new oak) possesses an opaque purple color as well as aromas of melted licorice, new saddle leather, roasted meats, truffles, black currants, and blackberries. Full-bodied and chewy, with supple tannin and a blockbuster finish, it will drink well for 10-12 years.

The current release, 2003, is an excellent wine, but this vintage kicks it up a notch. Itandrsquo;s brighter, fresher and more vibrant than its amply endowed precursor, bursting with peppery raspberries. Creamy and rich, yet wonderfully balanced, and while you could drink it now, it will also cellar well for 10-plus years.
