Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

The 1994 Command Shiraz possesses slightly high alcohol (14.5%). It possesses massive fruit extraction, tons of new American oak, low acidity, and layers of chewy, glycerin-imbued, concentrated fruit. It should drink well for another decade. I suspect this wine will become more civilized and less exuberant with bottle age. Elderton's wines are not for tasters seeking subtlety and elegance. This is an outrageously oaky, flamboyantly-styled offering with immense hedonistic appeal.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88?

Deep red-ruby. Port-like but very fresh aromas of crushed blackcurrants, chocolate, mocha and new oak. Fat, sweet and oaky in the mouth, with elevated alcohol. A real wave of fruit, but the flavors tend toward prune and lack delineation. Dominant note of vanillin oak. A big, inelegant mouthful that some tasters will like more than I did. Slightly tart-edged finish, with a note of scotch; perhaps a bit dried by the oak. (The Australian Premium Wine Collection, imported by USA Wine West, Berkeley, CA)

Wine Varietal: Syrah


While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
