Deep purple in color. Good nose (lush deep fruit) and an excellent taste (dark fruit with, hints of green vegetation, and some smokiness). Smooth medium finish - what you would expect from a good Australian Shiraz. Good value

Very smooth. Nice flavor. A stronger finish then what I prefer.

Deep medium ruby. Superripe, porty nose shows a slightly oxidative roasted nut element. Sweet and nutty, with a distinctly port-like surmaturite. Dense and thick, with some sexy oak tones in the mid-palate, but the wood element gives the finish a dry edge. Ultimately lacks real shape.

Ripe, rich and chewy. Dense, with cherry, blackberry and dusky spice flavors emerging on the long finish with generosity and style. Hints at sweet, spicy oak as it lingers. Drink now through 2013.

One sexy, concentrated wine. Aromas are rich and perfumed, featuring purple fruit and black pepper at the fore. It's still fairly tannic and young, but in a few years' time the purple fruit and wheat flour flavors will be showing beautifully.

A prodigious, decadently rich effort, Oliverhill's 2003 Shiraz Jimmy Section (15% alcohol) is a 100% Shiraz aged in French oak, of which one-third is new. It offers up a luxurious aromatic display of loamy earth, new saddle leather, blackberry liqueur, charcoal, and barbecue spices. Layered, chewy, full-bodied, and opulent with extravagant richness, sweet, supple tannin, and low acidity, this is a knock-out Shiraz to drink over the next 5-12 years.

The outstanding 2004 Shiraz Jimmy Section (100% Shiraz aged in French oak, of which one-third was new) exhibits a big, sweet nose of blackberries, licorice, pepper, and flowers. It's a stacked and packed, opulent, moderately tannic effort with superb density and richness as well as a multidimensional mouthfeel and persistent finish. It should age beautifully for 10-15 years.

This outstanding trio of McLaren Vale reds performed beautifully. One of South Australia's finest efforts is Oliverhill's 2005 Shiraz Jimmy Section. Aged in 100% French oak (33% new) for 17 months, it is an unbelievably dense wine boasting an exquisite perfume of spring flowers, blackberry and blueberry jam, smoky pain grille, and graphite. Huge intensity, full body, and stunning concentration, richness, and length suggest this spectacular wine will age effortlessly for 10-15+ years.

Inky ruby. Strikingly aromatic nose displays alluring ripe dark berry and spice elements, along with fresh flowers and minerals. Lush, deeply concentrated blackberry and mulberry flavors offer compelling sweetness and a suave, velvety texture. Where are the tannins? Finishes with very impressive palate-staining persistence.
