2005 Tatiarra Shiraz Cambrian Heathcote

($55) Inky ruby. Deep, powerfully aromatic red berry and cherry aromas are complemented by exotic Asian spices and vanilla, with a slow-mounting floral note adding interest. Weighty red and dark fruit flavors are gently supported by soft acidity and sneaky minerality. Gains sweetness with air, taking a jammy turn on the finish but maintaining superb energy and precision. The tannins here are impressively silky, giving the wine a very seductive character. Really captivating stuff. (Epicurean Wines, Seattle, WA)
