1999 Shiraz

Robert Parker Jnr states: “The blockbuster 1999 Shiraz has an opaque blue/purple color and an extraordinary nose of blackberries, blueberries, and toast. Full-bodied, ripe, and multi-layered with exhilarating levels of glycerin, concentration, and depth, this is a pure, full-bodied, surprisingly supple wine to drink over the next 10-12 years.”
