Elderton Command Shiraz 2009 Barossa Valley, Australia
|Wine Advocate #205
|Lisa Perrotti-Brown||94+||Drink: 2015 - 2024|
Deep garnet, the nose of the still youthful 2009 Command Shiraz reveals a lot of oak with a good core of cedar, black berry preserves, pepper, cinnamon stick, cloves and vanilla plus a whiff of mocha. Full-bodied and powerful in the mouth, it offers a great concentration of licorice and vanilla flavors in the mouth complementing the pure berry richness with firm, rounded tannins and crisp acid supporting, finishing long and cedary. With the oak standing out at the moment, it should drink best 2015 to 2024+.
