    Barossa power juice. This wine pushes out of the confines of the glass, a freight train of minerals and sleek black fruit. There's substantial weight to it and stillthe wine remains firm, tightening into the finish. Oak tannins eat some of its sweetness as the flavors develop with air, hinting at red fruit scents of rhubarb and strawberry. Decant it for brisket or other slow-cooked barbeque.

    Dark and inky, big but not gigantic, bursting with plum, cherry and white pepper flavors, hinting at cream as the spices kick in on the round, generous finish. Shiraz. Best from 2012 through 2017. 1,000 cases made.

  • ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE

    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

    The 2007 Shiraz The Bogan is 100% bush vine Shiraz planted in 1899. Aromas of lavender, Asian spices, underbrush, bacon, game, and blueberry lead to a ripe, full-bodied, succulent Shiraz in need of a bit more depth. It is a solid effort lacking the richness and concentration of the top vintages.
