Cellar Selection: Elderton Command Shiraz 2005

Producer: Elderton Wines Region: Barossa Valley, Southern Australia Price: $95 Vintage: 2005 Varietals: 100% Shiraz ABV: 14.5% Virginia Pour House Notes: Dark chocolate covered blackberries, light oak and smoky, wild dark berry seduce the nose. The body is full, supple, voluptuous and silky showing dark chocolate, blackberries, blueberry compote, pie crust and hints of light baking spice. Impeccable balance with a back end really displaying the tamed, integrated tannins and blowing you away on the finish with the same tight tannins and a warming, lingering and lengthy curtain call. Deep and complex; seductive yet refined. A lady in the glass, but kinky on the palate. The most velvety structured wine to hit my palate to date – incredibly well produced and a top tier wine.   Producer: Elderton Wines Region: Barossa Valley, Southern Australia Price: $95 Vintage: 2005 Varietals: 100% Shiraz ABV: 14.5% Virginia Pour House Notes: Dark chocolate covered blackberries, light oak and …
