Wine Profile

94 Vinous+

Inky purple. Highly perfumed bouquet of cherry-vanilla, candied dark berries, spicecake and woodsmoke, with a slow-building spiciness and a sexy floral quality. Lush and creamy in texture, offering sweet blackberry and blueberry flavors and an exotic note of coconut. Tannins sneak in on the finish, adding grip to the broad, deeply concentrated dark fruit. For all this wine's extroverted character there's also excellent structure and shapeliness. Made from vines that were mostly planted in 1894, and raised in 60% American oak.

Aroma Notes-
The Command Shiraz is deep ruby with lighter hues, leather, cigar box and spice on the nose. Intense aromas rise quickly to reveal blueberry, oak, vanilla, ripe berries, chocolate and chewy tannins. This is a powerhouse, full-body, great balance, and great length.

The Grape/Blend

Shiraz/Syrah

Black pepper, plum, dark chocolate, full color and tanninsThis grape is known as Syrah in northern Rhône, France and as Shiraz when grown in Australia. No matter what you call it, there is a Syrah or Shiraz for every palate and every occasion.This bold grape produces a range of powerful and smooth wines. The wines are ripe and indulgent, but leave you with its distinctive relish and go well with red meat.Whereas the Syrah/Shiraz grown in warmer conditions in general is sweeter and riper, wines from cooler areas appear aromatic, spicy and somewhat restrained.Choose a bottle from Barossa in Sout
