2005 Noon "Reserve" Shiraz Langhorne Creek South Australia

SKU #1028925 99 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2005 Shiraz Reserve was sourced from a 45-year-old vineyard and aged for 18 months in American and French oak of various sizes. A saturated purple color, it presents an array of otherworldly scents including smoke, mineral, meat, game, bacon, and blueberry. Thick, rich, and voluptuous, this mouth-filling, full-bodied Shiraz is about as hedonistic as it gets. Although the wine is seamless, there is some tannin lurking under all the fruit which will permit 8-10 years of cellaring for those able to delay gratification. The finish is amazingly long and pure, seeming to never end. As usual, the Noon wines are benchmarks against which all others must be compared. (JM) Inner quote mark (10/2007)

K&L Notes

Made from grapes grown by the Noon's friends; the Borrett family in Langhorne Creek on their "20 Rows" block. Crop size this vintage was reduced by a rare spring frost. Matured for 18 months in new and used American oak. A deep well of dark fruits and spices. The color is as dark as ever, with an intense nose of ripe blood plums, black olive paste, licorice and pepper/cloves. The palate is very full bodied, with excellent depth and richness of flavor. Nice dry, long finish with firm tannins.
