2004 AusVetia Shiraz South Australia

($70) Inky violet. Explosively perfumed bouquet of oak-spiced blackberry, blueberry, plum preserves, tobacco and fresh rose. Lush and sweet, with deep dark berry liqueur flavors, big but supple tannins, and an exotic floral pastille quality building with air. The oak notes echo on the long, sweet finish. Fans of big, sweetly fruity Aussie shiraz will go nuts for this one. (Old Bridge Cellars, Napa, CA)
