This wine sees plenty of French oak and is structured, with high levels of extract as well as tannin. It is built for 15-20 years of cellaring. The 1996 Command Shiraz is a big, full, powerful offering. A muscular, powerful wine, it requires another 1-2 years of cellaring, given its robust personality. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2018.
Medium red, starting to show some development. The bouquet is scented, with plush leathery, oaky aromas. The palate is complex, with that ultra-ripe, ultra-minty fruit which is undoubtedly one of the regional characteristics of ripe Barossa Shiraz, and which seems to be intensified by the vanilla oak.
