Hundred Acre 2004 Ancient Way Vineyard Summer's Blocks Shiraz (Barossa Valley)

Incredibly dark in color but light on its feet, this wine somehow manages to hide its 15.5% alcohol under fruit that's neither overblown or jammy. Spice- and herb-driven complexity is the order of the day, with scents of violets lending an exotic note to the aromas. It's mouthfilling and palate-coating but wonderfully balanced, picking up hints of black olive and espresso on the lingering finish. Good now, but appears to have the stuff to evolve over at least 10–15 years. Joe Czerwinski
