This is the first vintage that the Kay family put in 100% new American oak. A blockbuster effort, this wine conceals 14.9% alcohol in its personality, which is more akin to a dry vintage port than red table wine. This wine is terrific stuff, with blackberry fruit intermixed with camphor, asphalt, pepper, and new saddle leather. Viscous, rich, full-bodied, and still youthful, it requires another two to four years of cellaring. This is a wine capable of lasting 25-30 years. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2025.

This is a fabulous discovery for importer Ted Schrauth. Made from 104-year old head-pruned Shiraz vines, this old fashioned winery (notice the adorable low-tech label) bottled this unfined, unfiltered wine after it spent 18 months in old American oak upright wood tanks. A sensational blackberry, hickory smoke, and tar-scented and flavored Shiraz, it possesses huge body, fabulous extraction and ripeness, and glorious levels of black fruits, all infused with glycerin and heady alcohol. Fine purity and emerging complexity can be found in this super-intense, mouth-filling, blockbuster. Anticipated maturity: now-2016. Wow!
