Bright purple. Fresh blackberry and blackcurrant aromas are expansive and strikingly energetic. A deeply concentrated blend, offering sweet, sappy black and blue fruit flavors and refreshing spicy snap. The spiciness builds with air and carries through the persistent, floral-accented finish, which features silky tannins.

The Ball Buster is a perennial Best Buy in these pages. There are 15,000 cases of Taitandrsquo;s 2008 Ball Buster, a blend of 76% Shiraz, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 12% Merlot aged for 12 months in seasoned, predominantly American oak. Opaque purple-colored, it offers up a fragrant perfume of pencil lead, licorice, spice box, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Layered, savory, and long on the palate, this well-balanced, pleasure-bent effort will drink well for another 4andndash;6 years.

Soft, velvety and generous with its tobacco-accented plum and brown sugar flavors, lingering on the supple, spicy finish. Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2012.

Deep ruby. Blackberry, cassis, roasted coffee, vanilla and coconut on the nose-pretty exotic stuff. Thick and weighty, with powerful dark fruit flavors and a supple, velvety texture. The cassis flavor takes on an almost liqueur-like tone on the sweet, lush finish, but therersquo;s also energy and clarity here. A real overachiever for the price.

A great value in full-throttle red wine from Barossa is Taitrsquo;s 2005 The Ball Buster. This cuvee is becoming an incredibly popular choice for addicts of what are pejoratively called ldquo;fruit bombs.rdquo; However, there is a lot more to this wine than just fruit, and that simplistic term is the vinous equivalent of phony baloney. This blend of 80% Shiraz, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Merlot was aged in old American and French oak for 12 months. It offers a dense purple color in addition to a big, rich perfume of blackberries, plums, chocolate syrup, and subtle wood in the background. Powerful and rich with loads of glycerin as well as hefty alcohol (15.8%), it is a classic example of an opulent, full-throttle Barossa red to consume over the next 4ndash;5 years.

Smooth and velvety, a graceful wine with pretty plum and blueberry flavors, lingering gently as the finish sails on. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2012.
