Score: 95

The 2006 Shiraz was barrel-fermented and aged for 14 months in 85% new oak, with the barrels 90% American and 10% French. Saturated purple in color, it reveals a splendid bouquet of smoke, pencil lead, bacon, grilled meat, and blueberry. Supple-textured and opulent, this full-bodied Shiraz offers a range of spicy, complex flavors, superb balance, and enough well-concealed tannin to support 5-7 years of additional cellaring. This hedonistic Shiraz should drink well through 2026.

Shirvington Review

The wine was 100% barrel fermented and aged for 12 months in 75% new oak and 25% one year old oak. 90% of the oak was American and 10% was French. The 2006 vintage has an opaque red colour with a purple hue. This blockbuster wine shows an amazingly concentrated and intense nose with blueberry and blood plum filling the headspace. These fruit notes are joined with dark chocolate, vanilla bean and golden syrup nuances. The opulent palate has a magnitude of sweet creamy layers, soft and supple tannins and a seamless length full of liquorice, toasted coconut and cracked black pepper. The wine is drinking well now and will cellar for many years.
