Color: Very dark purple with bright magenta hues. Nose: Shows lashings of chocolate, violet and delicious cedar / vanillin oak characters. Palate: Rich and Generous, the wine has wondrous dark chocolate, plums and black pepper flavors that persist through to a fleshy finish. It is held together beautifully with refinement and amazing focus.

Wine Advocate

The 2004 Shiraz "Command" comes from a single block of 104-year-old vines. It was aged in 100% new oak puncheons (400 liter barrels). Opaque purple-colored, this Shiraz has fabulous aromatics of smoke, melted tar, licorice, espresso, game, and blueberry compote. Layered but tight, this full-bodied wine is thick, rich, and totally hedonistic. The finish lasts for 60 seconds. However, be warned. This monumental Shiraz needs 10-15 years to fully unfold. It will provide pleasure through 2035.

Score: 98. —Jay Miller, October 2007.

Wine Enthusiast

The current release, 2003, is an excellent wine, but this vintage kicks it up a notch. It's brighter, fresher and more vibrant than its amply endowed precursor, bursting with peppery raspberries. Creamy and rich, yet wonderfully balanced, and while you could drink it now, it will also cellar well for 10-plus years.

Score: 95. —Joe Czerwinski, November 01, 2007.

Wine Spectator

Supple, silky and appealing for its cherry pie, cherry jam and dusky spice aromas and flavors, showing enough transparency to hint at licorice and coffee around the edges. Lingers impressively on the polished, harmonious finish. A lithe, focused, ageable red. Drink now through 2016.

Score: 94. —Harvey Steiman, December 15, 2008.
