This shiraz is everything you're looking for in a full-bodied red wine. It's aged in wood (40% new) for 2 years before bottling. This adds a spicy element on the palate that's a perfect match with the near "confit" like, ripe fruit concentration.

Winemaker's Notes:

Why? This wine became an extremely scarce collector item when Robert Parker ordained it �Classic 97 points!� ROBERT PARKER TASTING NOTES: �Made from 100% Shiraz that spent 24 months in French oak (30% new), the exuberant, flamboyant 2004 The Factor offers up gorgeously pure blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with smoke, bacon fat, camphor, and graphite. Silky smooth, and, as David Powell says, �the most Barossa-like� of all his wines, it represents Powell�s rendition of a Cote Rotie. It can be drunk over the next 15-20 years. 97 points� PORTHOS INSIDER SCOOP: When Parker says �most Barossa-like� that is his code for saying this is a MASSIVE wine, not intended for the faint-of-heart but guaranteed to thrill decadent red wine lovers!
