    Medium to deep garnet in color, the 2002 Noon Eclipse contains 30% Langhorne Creek fruit from the '20 Rowsƒ?_ block. With evolving aromas of plum preserves, Christmas pudding, dark chocolate, espresso and licorice alongside nuances of earth and creme de cassis, this very big, rich and full-bodied wine offers plenty of dried fruit and spice flavor layers with just enough acid to refresh and a medium level of chewy tannins to frame. It finishes very long. Mature and drinking nicely now, it should cellar to 2017+.

    ($52.50; a blend of 70% McLaren Vale grenache and 30% Langhorne Creek shiraz; 15.9% alcohol) Saturated deep ruby. Sweet aromas of black raspberry, licorice, violet pastille and menthol. Supersweet flavors of blackberry liqueur and violet pastille, given clarity and penetration by strong, integrated acidity. Not particularly complex but the fruit offers superb purity and impressive power. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and strong dark berry fruit. I'd drink a wine like this over the next five or six years for its terrific primary fruit.

    Delicious shiraz. High alcohol contenet but wears it flawlessly. Ripe black raspberry and black cherry fruit. Flavors of kirsch and menthol. Highly extracted but well balanced. Finely grained tannins lead to a palate-coating finish with tremendous staying power. Yum!
