Opaque violet in the glass, with aromas of luscious black fruits, leather & tar, mouth-filling black plum, blackberry, baking spice and scorched earth dancing with fine tannins over a long finish. It did right by our lamb shanks and our guests.

Great nose of blackberry and plum with a touch of heat. Flavors of plum, black cherries, and scorched earth. Nice integration of tannins, fruit and acidity. Everything works in this wine. Outstanding - 91 points. Note: #57 in Wine Spectators Top 100 Wines of 2007.

Decanted 1 hour. Incredibly dark, almost black, in the decanter and glass, staining both. Big, sweet blackberry fruit flavors, but surprisingly mild tannins in this wine make it very easy to quaff. No heat as previously detected in March of last year. Just a very smooth, tasty, fruitbomb of a wine. I like it!

I liked this wine, but it was somewhat ordinary. It was good, just nothing extraordinary. I has a nice nose, legs, and body. But, it is too light for the substance you expect to be there. Nice for a family dinner with pasta and homemade sauce.

Blackberry and oak. Fruitbomb fans will pounce on this. Great value and a wine to introduce new folks to for a red wine.

A 'lifted' nose of blackberry and cherry is complemented by hints of spicy oak, on the palate soft tannins and lovely fruit characters make this a wine that is wonderfully drinkable now.

With the holidays upon us Irsquo;d like to take the opportunity to muse on few of my favorite things. Things like music, ESPN, blue skies, children playing, and the light in Joanrsquo;s eyes. Sunday mornings are special with the smell of freshly brewed coffee and guitar picking time. Occasionally Irsquo;ll indulge in Scotch and a fine cigar after dinner. More importantly, the unconditional love that family living brings, like when my dog excitedly greets me as if Irsquo;d been gone forever but all I did was go out and check the mail. For me, sipping the wine of life is what itrsquo;s all about. Speaking of which, I highly recommend the Shotfire Shiraz from both the rsquo;05 and rsquo;06 vintages. Theyrsquo;re very similar mdash; in fact, hard to tell apart, other than the rsquo;05 has a cork and the rsquo;06 has a screw cap (wersquo;ll cover that subject another time). The wines are equally gifted with seductively smooth fruit layered with ripe blackcurrant, plums and cherries naturally fused with dark chocolate, vanilla extract and allspice. These flavors will harmonize with turkey and all the trimmings as well as the beef tenderloin drizzled with a reduced Shotfire sauce Irsquo;ll be serving on Christmas Day. Come on in and let us show you a few of our favorite things.

One cannot help but be overcome by the incredible size and scope of these wines from Thorn-Clarke. Bold and decadent, the Shotfire Shiraz is a breathtaking wine reminiscent of melted chocolate and cherry liquor. Tannins are deftly integrated, giving definition and lift to the buckets of ripe, anise-tinged fruit and vanilla-scented oak.

Kräftige dunkelrote Farbe. In der Nase feines Zedernholz, Kirschen und Röstaromen. Im Gaumen vollmundig und fruchtig mit Noten von dunklen Beeren und Gewürzen, gut eingebundene Tanninen, exzellenter, langer Abgang.

The Shotfire Ridge cuvee is awesome. For readers who want something big, there are 6,000 cases of the lavish 2002 Shiraz Shotfire Ridge. It boasts an inky/purple color as well as a big, sweet, smoky, peppery, blackberry liqueur-scented nose followed by bold flavors of roasted meats, dried herbs, scorched earth, and spice. An incredible value, with huge body and massive fruit as well as glycerin, it is almost too good to be true. But it is! Drink it over the next decade.

Deep ruby. Ripe blackberry and plum aromas are complemented by dark chocolate and roasted espresso. Round, pliant dark berry flavors verge on liqueur-like but are given energy by gentle back-end acidity. Finishes smooth, sweet and moderately persistent. Irsquo;d have liked more energy but this packs a serious dark berry punch.

Winemaker's Notes:

Kräftig Dunkelrot. In der Nase ein Feuerwerk von Himbeeren, Zwetschgen, Kirschen und Tabakblätter. Im Gaumen explosiv mit Aromen von schwarzen Kirschen, karamellisierten Feigen und Kaffe kombiniert mit Röstaromen und Vanille.
