1998 Dutschke "Oscar Semmler" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (qty: 5)
The complex, saturated purple-colored 1998 Shiraz Oscar Semmler emanates from 25-year old vines. Aged for 24 months in new French oak, this opulent, full-bodied wine has a distinctive nose of grilled Italian sausage intermixed with blackberry, pepper, vanillin, and smoke. Chewy, powerful, and rich, with moderate tannin and a youthful exuberance, this large-scaled wine (15% alcohol) will be better with 2-3 years of cellaring. It should drink well for 18-20 years. (RP)
