Broad shouldered, bombastic black/red fruit, alcoholic, and too young to enjoy now. Will probably be more balanced in 10-15 years. Too high price for the tpday performance.

The flagship 2006 Old Bastard Shiraz was sourced from a 114-year-old vineyard and aged for 19 months in new and one year French oak.

As good as the preceding wines may be, they pale in the shadow of the 2005 Shiraz "Old Bastard," sourced from a 114-year-old vineyard, and which spent 22 months in new and one-year-old French oak. It presents a superb perfume of cedar, violets, laven... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2005 Kaesler Shiraz Old Bastard 750ml

Deep, bright ruby. Flamboyantly ripe aromas of singed blackberry, crème de cassis, peppered bacon, mocha, dried rose and oak spices, plus an exotic note of blood orange. Rich, velvety and dense, with sweet, powerful flavors of black currant, fruitcake, fudge, vanilla and black olive, all lifted by a floral top note. Finishes long and sweet, with fully enveloped tannins.

Saturated deep ruby to the rim. Flamboyantly ripe aromas of blackberry liqueur, chocolate and eucalyptus. Rich, pliant and thick, with brooding flavors of blackberry, blueberry, chocolate and mocha. Offers superb palate presence. A very fat wine that finishes surprisingly bright, with huge but suave tannins and a note of raspberry.

The flagship offering, the 2002 Shiraz Old Bastard was fashioned from a vineyard planted in 1896, and was cropped at one ton of fruit per acre. It spent 22 months in French oak before being bottled with neither fining nor filtration. A spectacular perfume of raspberries, plums, blackberries, espresso, vanilla, and charcoal is followed by a tannic Shiraz with a huge palate, massive concentration, tremendous richness, and a multidimensional flavor profile. Less alcoholic (15.2%) than the Bogan, it should be cellared for 4-6 years, and consumed over the following 20-25.

A rocket of a wine, dense, powerful and rangy, with raw-edged cherry, blackberry and cedary spice flavors competing for attention, persisting impressively on the long, vivid finish. Made from vines planted in 1893, called the Old Bastards block, in the heart of the Barossa, it's dense and rich (15.2 percent alcohol) but remarkably agile and balanced. Give it time to develop. Best from 2007 through 2017.
