Fresh and open-textured, appealing for its huckleberry and spice flavors, which linger on the refreshing finish. Drink now.

A good rule of thumb for the Thorn-Clarke wines: you should always double our price to get an idea of what the wine is really worth. This is especially true for the Winemakerandrsquo;s Selection Shiraz. Incredibly lush, with the kind of finish youandrsquo;re still tasting ten minutes later. Seamless, saturated and truly spectacular, with Cherry Coke, cranberry and cassis fruit flavors rounded out by licorice, black pepper and exotic oak spice. Dazzling!

Dark and a bit chewy, this is generous with its blackberry and cherry flavors, which pick up tobacco and prune notes on the finish. Drink now through 2012.

The 2009 Terra Barossa Winemakers Selection 1 Litre Shiraz gives a very deep garnet-purple color and aromas of warm black cherry and fruits of the forest with some allspice and a whiff of white pepper. Medium-full bodied with a medium level of grainy tannins, itrsquo;s generous with the mid-palate ripe fruit flesh and the finish is medium-long. Drinking now, it should remain fresh to 2014.

This wine continues to impress year after year. Bright black plum, sweet spice and rich oak mdash; a perfect barbecue match. Plus itrsquo;s a liter bottle, so you get another glass of this delicious wine for next to nothing.

The 2008 Terra Barossa Shiraz Winemakerandrsquo;s Selection was aged in French and American oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it is ripe, rich, yet light on its feet. Flavorful, layered, and well-balanced, it will evolve for 2andndash;3 years and offer a drinking window extending from 2011 to 2020. It is an outstanding value.

Deep, bright purple. Aromas of candied red and dark berries, with notes of mint and dried flowers adding complexity. A sweet, spicy midweight that offers juicy raspberry and cassis flavors and a hint of cracked pepper. Finishes bright and fresh, with good lift and lingering spiciness. Lots of straightforward fruit here and the price is right; it actually comes in a one-liter bottle.
