The Colonial Estate 2005 Explorateur Old Vine Shiraz (Barossa Valley)

A blend of fruit from the northern end of the Barossa, this is dark and loamy, filled with earth, spice and tobacco, but also featuring hints of meat, black olive and blueberries. The mouthfeel is lush and soft, and despite some slightly cooked fruit there's surprising freshness on the dusty finish. Drink now–2015. Joe Czerwinski
