International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 122

($74) Dark ruby. Smoky and meaty scents of dark cherry, plum and ripe blackcurrant. Sappy and thick on the palate, the intense cherry flavor intriguingly accented by notes of fresh bay, juniper, pipe tobacco and licorice candy. This has excellent concentration and a fat, unctuous texture. Finishes with outstanding length and superb energy and lift, with vibrant bitter cherry and cassis flavors going on and on.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 161

The 2001 Shiraz Command exhibits a slightly more roasted character than the 2002 as well as a hint of espresso in the nose, a touch more alcohol, and more elevated tannin. It also possesses tremendous concentration, intensity, and power, yet remains remarkably well-balanced and pure. This 3,000-case cuvee is one of South Australia's great classics.

Wine Spectator Author: Harvey Steiman

Silky tannins and rich flavors add up to an arresting wine, a seductive Shiraz that oozes with rich cherry, plum, exotic spice and meat flavors that linger against grace notes of chocolate and espresso. Delicious stuff, and it's built to last.

Big, bold and drinking well now. Good depth to complement the intense fruit.
