Sweet cassis, blueberry, pepper, huge oak, and tannins; goes down hot. Sweet fruit, huge oak and tannins, and heat; everything that traditionalists find objectionable re: new world wines. While I have a more modern palate, I still find this wine to be over the top and lacking in any real complexity. The '02 were superior, and I doubt that this will improve over time. Though not unpleasant to drink if you have some, I would not recommend purchasing.

The enormously endowed, ostentatious, yet captivating 2002 Shiraz 9 is a sexy effort. There are 1,500 cases of this blockbuster. Its inky plum/purple color is followed by sumptuous aromas of creme de cassis, blackberry liqueur, smoked meats, and toasty American oak (from aging in 100% new American barrels). Opulent, viscous, and thick, this succulent Shiraz is meant to offer immediate appeal. It should last for 7-8 years, becoming more civilized and measured with additional age.

U.S. importer Dan Phillips and Australian winemakers Sparky and Sarah Marquis are turning heads with their new label, whose roster includes some lower-priced wines and this blockbuster Shiraz. It's so big and heady it's almost a caricature of Aussie Shiraz, but ultimately stays in bounds. Ripe and dense, it has a distinctive note reminiscent of exotic spices, mingling with rich blackberry jam flavors, which resonate on the smoky finish. Drink now through 2008.

The blockbuster 2001 Shiraz 9 (aged in 100% American oak for 12 months prior to bottling) boasts an opaque inky/blue/purple color as well as a stunning bouquet of melted licorice intermixed with crème de cassis, blackberries, white chocolate, and pepper. It possesses great flavor intensity, marvelous purity, and superb definition for such a sexy, opulent, blockbuster Shiraz fruit bomb. There is plenty of tannin under the wealth of glycerin and fruit, but this is a wine to enjoy now and over the next 12-15 years.

The 2003 Shiraz 9 is a flamboyant, opaque purple-colored, full-bodied effort revealing notes of espresso roast, chocolate, smoked meats, and toasty American oak. Fleshy, full-throttle, pure, and intensely concentrated, it is a classic South Austrailian Shiraz to enjoy during its first 7ndash;8 years of life.

Smooth and generous, laden with a range of sweet spices, including cassis and anise, with hints of caramel against ripe plum flavors on the finish. Drink now through 2013.

Bright and generous, with a spicy mouthful of blackberry, huckleberry and white pepper flavors that linger effortlessly on the racy finish. Drink now through 2014.

The 2006 Shiraz 9 was tasted from a barrel sample. It has been barrel-fermented in new French and American oak barriques and hogsheads where it has been aging for 14 months (with another 2 months to go prior to bottling). It delivers an alluring bouquet of pain grille, smoke, mocha, espresso, and blue fruits. This is followed by a full-bodied, personality-filled Shiraz with blueberry, blackberry liqueur, licorice, and a hint of chocolate emerging on the palate. Opulent, sweet, and lengthy, it will evolve for several years but can be enjoyed now and over the next 12-15 years.
