Kaesler 2001 Old Bastard Shiraz (Barossa Valley)

Gets 100% new French oak for two years, and it shows. This is a big wine, with jammy berry and plum fruit that's doused in toasty, smoky flavors. Similar caramel-vanilla notes ring true on the nose. Finishes in a crescendo of caramel, and black plum and berry flavors. Excellent, to be sure, but also just massive. Don't try to drink this with anything other than a date and a bearskin rug—it's just not going to go with dinner. About 300 cases produced.
