Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

The fabulously concentrated, black/ruby-colored 1999 Command Shiraz (from a single vineyard) exhibits great intensity, massive body, and huge notes of smoke, licorice, creosote, blackberries, truffles, and vanilla. This is a dense, chewy, classic example of the full-flavored, massive style that can emerge from old vine Barossa Valley Shiraz. It will hit its prime in 4-8 years, and last for two decades.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

Rich, warm, ripe and generous with its black cherry, tar, coffee and licorice flavors, which echo on the superfine, polished frame. Has density without excessive weight, and it lingers beautifully. 375 cases imported.

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.
