Description

The flagship wine off an iconic Barossa Estate where the first vines were planted back in 1894. The oldest vines are so huge in the trunk... it's almost impossible to reach your arms around them. They yield the most concentrated and characterful fruit imaginable and always form the base for this legendary Command! 2014 was a stellar vintage and looks at this early stage to be a special wine. Immensely concentrated and with complexity to burn, it will hugely reward those with the patience to cellar it for 2-3 decades. If you open before 20-years... give it a good decant and savour it with a special meal.

Smells

Deep, brooding aromas of liquorice, anise, blackberry, mocha and a lovely freshening note of clove.

Tastes

Opulent and rich with lovely flavours of mocha and chocolate over the black liquorice and layers of sweet fruit. There is a superbly refreshing briny character giving an elegance to the palate which elevates this above a raft of hugely concentrated flagship Aussie Shiraz and into another category. Enjoy this gentle giant between now and 2035.
