Glaymond Wines Shiraz Barossa Valley Distinction 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes :The dense ruby/purple-colored 2004 Shiraz The Distance exhibits plenty of blackberry and cassis fruit as well as smoke, graphite, and pepper characteristics. Full-bodied, powerful, and rich, with 16.2% alcohol, it should age well for 10-15 years.

This is absolutely my favourite wine, ever. We enjoyed it with roast duck and blueberry sauce on Christmas Day 2005. I'm afraid I just don't have the wine vocabulary to do it justice in my review, so I'll keep it uber-simple: try it! You won't be disappointed. Worth every penny and more. Addendum: I gave this wine 4.5 out of 5 only because I'm holding out my 5-star rating for that spectacularly mind-blowing mythical 5-star wine that I haven't yet tasted.
