Impenetrable black as night heart with a very deep dark red black hue. Potent black plum, liquorice and black cherry liqueur like aromas flood the nostrils followed by vanillin oak, fennel and spicy mocha notes. Rich, thick and heavy the densely textured palate is engulfed with lavish black plum, liquorice and black cherry liqueur flavours. Super concentrated and powerful it has ripe chewy tannins and an underbelly of vanillin oak, fennel and pepper. Finishes with some heat on the long flamboyant aftertaste.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.

Other Reviews….
Shiraz sourced from 1993 plantings at the Greenock Creek estate in Seppeltsfield. Deeply coloured with broody-edged characters of blackberry, black cherry and dark plum with hints of roasting meats, olive tapenade, cedar, vanilla, blueberry pie, fruitcake, ironstone, dark chocolate, licorice and violets. Toothsome and textured, compact in tannin with surprising vivacity and acid cadence, focusing and accelerating on the back palate before exiting with a rich, black-fruited roostertail. Woah! Drink by 2035.
