    The 2004 Shiraz Greens Vineyard, which emerges from the Vinevale sub-region of Barossa, was cropped at one ton of fruit per acre, aged in 100% new French hogsheads, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Representing the essence of the vineyard, and looking more like blood than wine, it possesses an inky/purple color as well as a beautiful bouquet of roasted meats, blackberries, cherries, and jus de viande, a brilliant mid-palate and finish, and a tremendously long, blockbuster mouthfeel that saturates the palate. Some tasters may feel it is too much of a good thing, but it is incredibly pure, brilliantly well-balanced, and will become more civilized with time in the bottle. It should easily keep for 20-25 years.
