"Little Wine" #6 Syrah

Cherry bomb! Laurel, leather and coffee too. So impressive, and young (spent 10 hours in the decanter before we started sniffing and nipping !) — 4 days ago

Claret Shiraz 1971

This wine was shamelessly young
I could not absorb this information
I tasted it 10 years ago and I thought it was good and fairly holding up; now, this is my second bottle of the month, the other wasn't perfect, but this one, mamma mia, had a freshness that you might find in a good sangiovese. This bottle could have laid down for another 10 years easily.
Maybe not super long aftertaste, but the flavors and scents are ever changing and never ending.
To buy again and keep, crossing your fingers that you put your hands on a perfect bottle like this one.
Yes, it is 1971.

Hoffman Dallwitz Syrah 2016

@Mark Flesher @Shay A totally agree with score and and everything else expressed - i have twelve well 11 left so I am going to wait 5-7 years

Rhonda says marinated flank steak and twice baked potatoes with grilled asparagus would compliment this wine so well

Now for Mike Rowe comments - well I can say this bad boy has some bold vibes that would make Deadpool jealous with the flexibility and the smell spends time trying to provoke childhood thoughts of the best amazing smells of mountain fruit where I grew up - the taste reaches as deep as the Grand Canyon for me after it wakes up and it takes a long time wake up but when it does 💥 💥 💥- the finish was not as long as I wanted but I bet in 5 years this wine will be at a level that is not even comparable- but and store if possible - you will be glad you did - all smiles

Barossa Command Single Vineyard Shiraz 2004

After a brief decant this wine produced a lovely perfume redolent of ripe plums ( almost pruney) Earth, minerals, black fruits and a little crushed ant. Also espresso notes A lot going on from this premium Barossa Cuvée On the medium to full bodied palate prunes plum and earthy meaty characters. This was an exceptional Shiraz. The fruit for the Command comes from a vineyard planted in 1894. — 18 days ago

@David T I have never actually been to the Cellar Door but 25 weeks ago at the Downs Club Cameron Ashmead hosted an Elderton Dinner featuring a 2010 6 litre Methuselah which he had kindly brought.
