Vintage: 2000 05/23/2011

Opaque inky ruby. Superripe, assertive aromas of kirsch, dark plum, fig cake and coffee, with exotic hints of sandalwood, clove and cinnamon. An outsized and densely textured shiraz whose 16.2% alcohol gives a glyceral, unctuous texture to the sweet, concentrated flavors of blackberry, cassis and chocolate. There's considerable power and a brooding quality to the finish, which features powerful tannins and a roasted plum quality.

The blockbuster 2000 Shiraz Somerville (only 1,200 bottles produced) was aged in French oak. A candidate for "wine of the vintage" in this section of Australia, it reveals an opaque purple color along with gorgeous aromas of melted chocolate intermixed with espresso roast, blackberries, cherries, and currants. It possesses considerable power (15.8% alcohol), a voluptuous, opulent personality, full body, low acidity, and well-integrated tannin. This knock-out Shiraz will provide immense enjoyment over the next 10-12+ years. Drink 2003-2015.

A Shiraz with a Type A personality; Big and brash on the nose, with enthusiastic, forward flavors on the palate. Up front, it smells like marzipan, toast, raspberry and blackberry, and similar notes ring true in the mouth, Finishes pretty long, with a biscuit or cracker-like flavor. Very tasty.

The limited selection luxury cuvée (less than 100 cases), the 2001 Shiraz Somerville, is fabulous. An inky/ruby/purple color is accompanied by sumptuous aromas of blackberry liqueur, sweet espresso roast, white chocolate, melted licorice, and a subtle notion of oak. This unctuously textured, thick, rich, extraordinarily pure, elegant Shiraz will drink well for 10-15 years.
