International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 115

($66) Full medium ruby. Superripe aromas of mocha, game, mulch and eucalyptus; here, too, the oak is less dominant than in past vintages. Huge, broad and mouthfilling, with very ripe, fat flavors of sweet red berries and woodsmoke. Offers impressive thickness and density without going over the top. Fairly high in alcohol at 14.5% but carries its weight reasonably gracefully. A real meal substitute of a shiraz , and quite showy already.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 155

The classic 2000 Command Shiraz (aged nearly three years in new oak) possesses an opaque purple color as well as aromas of melted licorice, new saddle leather, roasted meats, truffles, black currants, and blackberries. Full-bodied and chewy, with supple tannin and a blockbuster finish, it will drink well for 10-12 years.

Wine Spectator Author: Harvey Steiman

Big and powerful, brimming with tarry, spicy black cherry, dark plum, blackberry and chocolate flavors. Rich and gooey like a warm flourless chocolate cake, yet it finds a plush balance that keeps it from veering off into heaviness. This has grace, harmony and refinement, without losing an ounce of power. 600 cases imported.

One of a kind olive oil texture that fades away into a long dry spicy finish. Huge wine with chocolate and raspberry flavors, that ends with spice. Balanced tannins keep this from being a fruit bomb. Awesome, black forest cake in a bottle!
