Fresh ground herbs greet the nose on this magnificent wine at uncorking, with mercurial wafts of cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper, cloves, and faint rosemary intermingling. At 30 minutes, notes of vanilla, maple, tobacco and graphite join the medley and add complexity. The opulent aromatics continue to evolve and at an hour, fruity whiffs of cherry, raspberry, plum and raisin join earthy scents of spring grass and oak to deepen and broaden the array. Still more emerges at two hours, with a delicate fragrance of rose decorating the harmonies of both red and dark fruits. The palate launches acerbic and tight and requires a full 30 minutes to begin to display its profound complexity, but once it does, this sumptuous wine opens to a smorgasbord of intense, thick flavors, including cherry, raspberry, rich dark berries, coffee, nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper, grass, alfalfa, vanilla, oak, and an herbal sharpness on the medium finish. The wine is somehow chewy and elegant at the same time, with a strong tannic structure, leaving the palate fully engaged but dry and cleansed as the zingy finale occurs, as if ballerinas were bourreeing gracefully off stage as music fades. 5/14/2011

This wine will give you all the flavours and nuances you are looking for in a McLaren Vale Shiraz. It has a lifted intense nose with chocolate, licorice, cherries and spice characters. The palate is mouth watering with layers of complexity and length. The fruit flavours are powerful, yet velvety and seamless. It is a delight to drink.

The big, concentrated yet velvety-textured, magnificent 2003 Shiraz reveals a seamless integration of tannin, acidity, wood, and alcohol, it boasts aromas of blackberry liqueur intermixed with violets.
