97 Points Robert Parker
The flagship 2006 Johann Georg Shiraz comes from a 131-year-old vineyard and spent two years in French and American oak hogsheads, two-thirds new. Purple/black in color with legs that slowly ooze down the glass, it reveals an expansive perfume of wood smoke, lavender, mineral, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Opulent on the palate, this velvety-textured, rich Shiraz has that extra dimension of complexity that only old vines can deliver. For optimum pleasure, cellar this special effort for 6-8 years and drink it from 2015 to 2036.
