Winemaker's Notes:

A truly remarkable Shiraz. This powerful yet extremely smooth and aromatic wine fills your mouth with lovely ripe, sweet fruit. It will amaze you with its unctuous texture and silky tannins. The Blue Eyed Boy on the label is Sarah and Sparky's son, Luke.

This wine is still young and backward, but has lots of promise. The nose is closed at uncorking, and doesn’t reveal much for the first hour. After an hour, a pleasant assortment of aromas take their turns on the stage, starting with cinnamon, smoke, tobacco, wood, dusty loam, and crushed minerals. At two hours, an array of dark berries, plus cherry and a hint of jasmine, intermingle. The palate begins tight and astringent, but broadens at an hour to display a medley of fruit and floral flavors. Bitterness begins to mellow as a fruity center emerges, and at two hours, the palate opens further, now including cherry, blackberry and rich plum on a medium finish through which the fruit lingers and dominates. A pleasant acidity helps the wine maintain a tasty tang on the back.

92 Points - The Wine Advocate "The 2009 Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz is a 20% Langhorne Creek and 80% McLaren Vale blend matured in 71% new and 29% 1 year American oak. Very deep garnet-purple colored, it is profoundly scented of blueberry and black cherry with touches of mint, mocha and the faintest whiff of damp loam. Very full-bodied, the bold, ultra-ripe fruit is well supported by medium-firm chewy tannins and medium-high acid, leading to a very long and pure if slightly warm finish. Drink this one 2012 to 2017+."91 Points - Wine Spectator "Rich and ripe, with a burnt edge to the spice and dried tomato flavors that remain strong against the blueberry and plum fruit. The tannins are well-meshed. Best from 2012 through 2018. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 19,000 cases made."

Here is an elite Shiraz from the inimitable Sparky Marqius who's lush, densely flavored Australian wines are all cult classics. This one scored 92 points from the Wine Advocate who said "The 2009 Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz is a 20% Langhorne Creek and 80% McLaren Vale blend matured in 71% new and 29% 1 year American oak. Very deep garnet-purple colored, it is profoundly scented of blueberry and black cherry with touches of mint, mocha and the faintest whiff of damp loam.
