Big, rich, super-ripe wine which - as EX-RAY writes - has a touch of raisin-prune that suggests it's time to start drinking up. A touch too much heat on the finish for my palate, though. Regardless, pretty darned good.
Still very dark and opaque. Very aromatic, typical shiraz with oak notes. Still very full-bodied, typical of Sarah and Sparky, with mouth-coating dense fruit, nicely balanced, with a long, slightly sweet aftertaste. It has softened a bit with age but is still very big, though not tannic. There's a touch of raisin-prune, so I think it's time to enjoy these. Ric

(Henry's Drive Shiraz Reserve) Group's #8 (my #7) – cinnamon and cherry liqueur nose that turned (or I adapted) to vaguely beefy and raspberry; big, hot, more acidic than the rest, simply hot all the way down; long finish (16%)
