Aged in new and one-year-old American oak, and made in a completely different style, the 2005 Shiraz The Bogan (from 25- to 105-year-old vines) is a dense purple-colored effort displaying an exuberant nose of toast, blackberries, cassis, cherries, and damp earth. It is full-bodied and powerful with fabulous purity and texture as well as a blockbuster finish. This is a classic example of Barossa Shiraz at its finest. Enjoy it over the next 12-15 years. (RP)
Like all the Kaesler wines, carries the extreme alcohol with surprising ease; black fruits and a bright finish; from 1899 and 1965 plantings.
Inky violet. Explosively perfumed bouquet of creme de mure, blueberry, vanilla, rose, clove and cinnamon. Velvety in texture and strikingly sweet, with powerful dark berry and cherry flavors underscored by strong vanillin oak. But this doesn't come off as woody, thanks to immensely concentrated dark berry fruit, which seems to explode on the aftertaste. Wonderfully expressive Shiraz with the depth and balance to repay cellaring. But it's hard to resist today. (JR)
Big and bold, like the excellent ’04 version. If anything, it emphasizes the fruit even a bit more, with less spicy complexity, but it’s a black hole of plum and blackberry fruit that explodes in the mouth, staining the palate with fruity intensity. The alcohol level must be elevated, but it’s well concealed by supple tannins. (JC)
Lithe, supple and generous. A silken mouthful of ripe blueberry, plum and black olive flavors, mingling effectively as the finish rolls on and on. The tannins are well-integrated. (HS, Web Only-2007)
