Rusdenrsquo;s flagship is the 2004 Shiraz ldquo;Black Guts,rdquo; sourced from a vineyard planted in 1959. It was aged for 30 months in barrel, 10% new American, 25% new French, with the balance used French. Purple-colored (but not as saturated as many of its Barossa peers), it delivers a stunning perfume of mineral, gunpowder, roasted meat, blueberry, and chocolate. This is followed by a full-bodied, velvety-textured Shiraz with gobs of layered fruit, terrific intensity and balance, and a very long finish. It will develop for 6ndash;8 years and drink well through 2025.

A flagship cuvee, the 2003 Shiraz Black Guts is fashioned from a 47-year-old vineyard planted in the Vine Vale section of Barossa. Its wood regime of 30 months in a combination of new American and new as well as old French barrels resulted in a fabulous expression of Barossa Shiraz. Deep, full-bodied, and intense with peppery, blackberry, smoky, roasted meat, and herb characteristics, a huge, expansive, chewy mouthfeel, and a stunning, 50-second finish, this profound Shiraz is approachable, but should age beautifully for 15ndash;20 years.

A fabulous offering is the 2002 Shiraz Black Guts. Made from 36-year-old vines cropped at 1ndash;2 tons of fruit per acre, it boasts an inky/purple color followed by a sumptuous nose of blueberries, blackberries, cold steel, acacia flowers, and subtle new oak. Layers of fruit and purity cascade over the palate of this long, rich, full-bodied, voluptuously textured, impeccably balanced Shiraz. Anticipated maturity: 2006ndash;2020+.

Dark violet. Powerful, intense aromas of ripe blackberry and candied blackcurrant, lifted by vanillin oak spices. Thick, supple and almost sweet in dark fruit expression, with liqueur-like cassis and dark cherry flavors and a ripeness on the back that suggests Amarone. Outsized and rich but also nicely focused, with well-managed tannins. Finishes with admirable persistence and sweetness mdash; if you like this style. Undeniably makes a statement.

Rusden's flagship is the 2004 Shiraz "Black Guts," sourced from a vineyard planted in 1959. It was aged for 30 months in barrel, 10% new American, 25% new French, with the balance used French.
