2006 Tahbilk 1860 Vines Shiraz

What an amazing wine! Both juicy red cherry and dried red fruits with whispers of tea, dark earth, and licorice tumble happily around the palate until the next sip. So delicious and such deep and layered flavors. Old vines indeed!

"97 pts ... Exceptionally bright, clear crimson with no hint of colour change; this one of the best 1860s Vines ever made. It has effortless power that invests the palate with extreme length, the red and black cherry fruit responsible for all the aroma and flavour, oak merely a vehicle, the tannins superfine. The number of vines killed by frost in 2007 is a tragedy of monumental proportions. Drink through 2030. "
"96 pts ... Coming from a single vineyard planted in 1860, the 2006 1860 Vines Shiraz was aged in French oak hogheads, 30% new, for 26 months. Very deep garnet colored, it presents a complex, savory nose with notes of sandalwood, Ceylon tea and cigar boxes over cranberry tea, red currant preserves, kirsch, potpourri, anise and forest floor. Elegant and medium bodied in the mouth, it packs-in layers of flavors with crisp acid and firm, grainy tannins, finishing long and earthy. It makes a very good glass now though will reward cellaring, drinking to 2024+. "--06/11
