Ranked #18 of 20 1999 Shiraz from Barossa Valley
Old leather armchairs, very mature and savoury, lots of earth and roast-meats and old leather. Tannins are dominating now, rather grippy and a bit unbalanced. Rather hot and harsh, but lacks balancing fruit and charm. Just OK. Decent rather than exciting.
95 Points James Halliday
Fragrant black fruit aromas; excellent mouthfeel and balance; silky tannins and perfect oak. Fully deserves its multiple trophies and golds. Drink to 2014.
