Medium to full red-purple; ripe, rich blackberry and chocolate fruit aromas lead into a gloriously rich palate offering the same flavours as the bouquet, untrammelled by oak, and finishing with soft, almost silky, tannins. Irresistible.
Warm, rich and supple, a seductive wine dripping with ripe blackberry, black cherry, vanilla and spice flavors that weave through the highly polished finish and last and last. Tannins are present, but nicely submerged.
The 1998 Shiraz Oracle, made from 40-year old vines, and aged in 60% American and 40% French oak, is an unfiltered, full-throttle, opaque purple-colored Shiraz possessing copious quantities of truffle, new saddle leather, pepper, and blackberry fruit aromas. As the wine sits in the glass, scents of overripe plums, cherries, and spice emerge from this heady, powerful, nicely-textured, plush Shiraz. Rich and robust, it should be consumed over the next 8-10 years.
