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.

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.

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.
