Colour Dark Red
Nose Black Cherries, red currants, and obligatory blueberry, blackberry and plum. The oak leaves a thread of spice and scented smoke throughout the nose and palate. Its a bit woody and austere at the moment, and thats a good thing for the future.
Alcohol 15.5%
Palate The wine works its way to the centre of the palate very quickly; from there it radiates a quick pulse of tight, focussed glycerol, though not sweet or cloying. The tannin succeeds it, with powdery high pixel density, which slowly gives way to a broader wa

"The 2008 Old Bastard is 100% Shiraz off 115 year old bush vines...."

The 2008 Old Bastard is 100% Shiraz off 115 year old bush vines. Very deep purple-black colored, the nose is youthfully mute giving subtle notes of damp soil and underbrush over a floral scents, dark cherries, crushed blueberries, mulberries, nutmeg, allspice and a whiff of cardamom. With coaxing, aromas of chocolate and menthol emerge. The palate is very full-bodied and richly fruited with a high level of enlivening acid, firm, very finely textured tannins and a long mocha and baking spice finish. Consider broaching this beauty from 2013 and drink to 2022+. -By Robert Parker
