International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 134

($82) Dark purple. Bright red and dark berry scents display impressive focus and clarity, with subtle baking spice and vanilla notes adding complexity. Very fresh-in fact almost painfully young-with nervy raspberry and cherry flavors supported by silky tannins and a jolt of acidity on the back. This opened up a bit with air, but really should be cellared for at least another five years.

The 2004 Shiraz "Command" comes from a single block of 104-year-old vines. It was aged in 100% new oak puncheons (400 liter barrels). Opaque purple-colored, this Shiraz has fabulous aromatics of smoke, melted tar, licorice, espresso, game, and blueberry compote. Layered but tight, this full-bodied wine is thick, rich, and totally hedonistic. The finish lasts for 60 seconds. However, be warned. This monumental Shiraz needs 10-15 years to fully unfold.

Wine Spectator Author: Harvey Steiman

Supple, silky and appealing for its cherry pie, cherry jam and dusky spice aromas and flavors, showing enough transparency to hint at licorice and coffee around the edges. Lingers impressively on the polished, harmonious finish. A lithe, focused, ageable red.

This was a very good bottle. Good round berry, well integrated tannins and a hefty earth and tar note. Not as overwhelmingly berry as many 2004s I've had. This was the clear winner amongst a flight of 2004s - amon-ra, mitolol G.A.M. Among the 2004s at ths price point I have sampled, only the Greenock Alice's Block beats this out.

Command performance indeed! Silky integrated tannins with toasty oak and a hint of pepper on a finish that builds and lasts.
