À favourite! Found the 2004 vintage on the Swedish alcohol monopoly market were it was brought in as limited edition a fel years ago. I bought all bottles i fouls find for bargain prices! Fantastic fruit concentration with excellent long Smooth vanilla finish. Cellar potential but more than drinkeble today.

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2005 vintage is all about power — the wines are BIG!! The icon wines from this vintage will need time in your cellar. Obsidian is one of these — it commands your attention. We began separating out our ultra premium shiraz for a reserve wine 7 years ago and the 2005 Obsidian is an amazing example of what great vintages from great vineyards can achieve when given the latitude. This wine screams life — it's a gangster!Tasting NotesColour Purple with black hue.Nose Liquorice, bitter chocolate, plums, amarone, currants, crushed almonds.Palate Amazing concentration. A thick wine with loads of character and extract. The front and back palate are melded together with a mass of fruit weight, acid and tannin. I am amazed at where this wine is for its age.Cellaring 25+ years.
