Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

($77) Inky ruby. Powerful, almost candied aromas of boysenberry, mulberry and dark cherry, with subtle hints of smoked meat and cinnamon. Deeply concentrated, velvety dark fruit flavors expand to fill every crevice of the palate. Utterly palate-staining finish showcases vivid cherry and cassis fruit, with completely buffered, plush tannins sneaking in at the very end.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

A stunning effort, the 2002 Shiraz Command exhibits an inky/blue/purple color as well as a sweet perfume of camphor, blueberries, blackberries, acacia flowers, and smoky, toasty oak. Full-bodied, opulent, and viscous, with huge, but sweet tannin, decent acidity, and a muscular, long, 40+ second finish, this is a classic, potentially long-lived, Barossa blockbuster. It's accessible now, but ideally needs another 2-4 years of bottle age, and should keep for two decades.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

Rich, dense and velvety, distinctive for its blueberry, boysenberry and spice flavors, shaded with subtle cocoa and tar notes, lingering beautifully on the subtle, generous finish. Best from 2008 through 2015. 1,550 cases imported.

This was a stunning shiraz. Deep ruby color, fantastic nose--red fruits and cedar predominated. Full on the tongue, again with lots of red fruit. Very balanced--tannins were evident but muted.Much more than a fruit bomb. Developed in the glass for 45 minutes. This is drinking superbly now, but will continue to develop for several years.

Tasted for a second time and I liked it much better. Fat mid-palate. Maybe it will better intergrate with time. Lots of fruit but not flabby. Has enough acid and tannins. Curious to see how it would develop in 4-6 years. Like this better than the 04 Quintessa.
