    The 2002 Shiraz Alice's was produced from 7-year-old vines. Dense, with remarkable intensity and wonderful freshness, it is a cool climate Barossa Shiraz with good acidity, enormous concentration, and a backward style that promises to be ethereal with 4-5 more years of bottle age. It should last for two decades.

    There are 1,500 cases of the 2003 Shiraz Alices (from 9-year-old vines), a wine of great nobility, purity, texture, and layers of flavor. While it possesses phenomenal power as well as richness, it carries itself with extraordinary elegance and finesse. The whopping 16.5% alcohol is beautifully incorporated into this massive, but impeccably well-balanced Shiraz. Drink it over the next 12-15 years.

    Located in the northern Barossa Valley, close to some of the finest sources for the wines of Penfold's Grange. As Robert Parker has noted, these wines exhibit a "wealth of fruit and intensity - these are massive, opulently textured, extraordinary wines".

    The 2005 Aliceandrsquo;s Shiraz spent 28 months in seasoned American oak hogsheads. Aromas of smoke, asphalt, meat, game, truffle, and blueberry soar from the glass. On the palate this full-bodied Shiraz is velvety-textured, layered, spicy, and richly fruity. While not quite as riveting as the 2004 edition, it has enough structure to evolve for several years and should drink well through 2025.

    Heady and superripe, this is a huge, mouthfilling wine that fits the ooze monster moniker, yet it finishes with structure and elegance. Camphor and cracked pepper scents accent the blackberry, dark chocolate and mint flavors that finish long, framed by dusty tannins. Drink now-2025.

    The 2004 Shiraz "Alice's Block" received the same 28 months in used American oak. The riveting nose of smoke, asphalt, earth, truffle, blackberry, and blueberry roars from the glass. Dense, packed, and opulent, it somehow is able to concurrently exhibit finesse and elegance. Amazingly pure and long in the finish, one's first reaction is that it cannot get any better. Remarkably, it does.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    In part fueled by Robert Parker, who has never scored a Greenock wine lower than 90 points, demand regularly outstrips supply for the wines from this cult-status, 2500 case per year boutique winery. With fruit sourced out of Seppeltsfield and aged for 28 months in American oak, Alices is by far the biggest, chewiest, smokiest Shiraz on the block. A must try!
