A very good, if atypical Barossa Shiraz. Blueberry and bitter chocolate spar on the nose, with some nice spice notes and earthy leather underneath it all. This one opens up slowly, and is actually drinking better on day two (vacuum pumped). Balanced on the palate, with seamless tannins, hinting at an elegance that never quite fully develops. I'm not a big Shiraz drinker, but wines like this make me believe in the promise of Australia.

Dark ruby. Smoky, graphite-accented blackberry and cassis aromas, with suave toasty oak adding complexity. Broad, fleshy and sweet, with deep blueberry and plum flavors gently lifted by slow-mounting acidity. Gains brightness on the finish, which features impressive sweetness allied with subtle mineral tones.

Dense and spicy, with a spike of black pepper and red chili on the finish to balance the black cherry fruit. Has fine tannins, but this needs time to come together. Best after 2008.

The 2005 Shiraz “Bad Impersonator” was sourced from a single vineyard and aged in French oak, 20% new. It offers a bouquet of cedar, spice box, pepper, clove, and blueberry. This leads to a layered wine with excellent depth, silky tannins, fine balance and even some elegance. Drink this lengthy, fruit-filled wine over the next 6 years.

From 40-year-old vines, the 2003 Shiraz Bad Impersonator reveals a French-like, graceful, elegant personality as well as plenty of concentration and intensity. Offering up notes of blackberries, dried herbs, subtle sweet vanillin, and notions of blueberries and roasted meats, this complex, ripe, medium to full-bodied Shiraz is satisfying both hedonistically and intellectually. Enjoy it over the next decade.

Sourced from select vineyards in the Barossa Valley, the grapes for this wine were crushed and fermented in open top fermenters with regular pump overs, 3 times daily during peak fermentation to extract color and tannin. Following 7 to 21 days of maceration the wine was racked to barrel. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel where it aged 14 months in 26% new French oak hogsheads. Bottled with minimal fining and no filtration it's made to age 5-10 years or more. James Haliday of the Australian Wine Companion scored it 94 points saying "Spotlessly clean aromas; abundant ripe, fleshy black fruits in a plum and blackberry spectrum; soft tannins, good oak."
