Pirate Cru Imp's Old Vine Shiraz 2014

Still throwing a fair whack of lumber on this one, it's big and brassy, still evident at five years of age. Fruit sits underneath, Barossan to its core, all mulberry and damson like, purple in its magnificence. 

There's a suppleness for all its heft. A succulent black fruited kiss of fruit sweetness, fine grain of tannin, but really the depth is what marks this wine out. 

It's certainly of its style and place, a marker it more than happily carries with conviction. 93
