Big, muscular style has ultra ripe cherry and dusky spice flavors, finishing with flavors of rare meat and pepper. A brawny wine that's also a bit hot. Best after 2007.

The 2003 Shiraz Reserve, which I assume is made from the richest barrels, has all the same characteristics, with more weight, opulence, and persistence. The 16% alcohol is beautifully concealed by its prodigious concentration. Readers who love the extroverted personalities of these wild and crazy Australian reds should drink it over the next 10-12 years.

Smooth, supple and generous with its red cherry, raspberry and red bell pepper flavors. An aromatic red that keeps singing through the juicy, slightly hot finish. Drink now through 2012.

A dramatic wine, rich and spicy, almost Port-like, with exotic spices, bitter chocolate and black pepper notes mingling with ripe currant and plum flavors as they persist on a big finish. Drink now through 2007.

From a cooler climate sector of Padthaway, the 2004 Shiraz Reserve is an elegant, soft, complex effort revealing Southern Rhone-like aromas of garrigue, ground pepper, and spice box interwoven with blackberries, cassis, sweet cherries, and herbal undertones. This wild, rich, heady Shiraz tips the scales at 16% alcohol. Drink this provocative, undeniably pleasurable 2004 over the next 7ndash;8 years.
