2010 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

SKU #1079585 97 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep purple-black in color, the 2010 Amon-Ra is very closed on the nose showing pure black fruits, chocolate and licorice with just a touch of loam. Full-bodied and densely packed, the voluptuous palate is framed by firm, fine tannins and a crisp acid line. It has a long, well-balanced finish. Drink it from 2014-2026+. (LPB) Inner quote mark (2/2013)

96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Despite this wine's weight and richness, it retains a superb sense of balance and structure. Firm acids and tannins support the blueberry fruit, while savory notes of mocha and roasted meat provide added dimension. Give it a few years in the cellar and drink it from 2015–2025. *Best of 2013, Cellar Selection* Inner quote mark (9/2013)

95 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark This wine is impenetrable in colour; the bouquet is a melange of black fruits, oak, spice, tar and licorice; the palate reveals even more dark fruits, more depth, in fact, more of everything, and that is the essence of the wine; this will go the distance, and if you like impressive wines, then search no further. Inner quote mark (11/2011)

94 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Dark purple. Flamboyant aromas of blackcurrant, blueberry, incense, vanilla and Indian spices. Concentrated, penetrating and densely packed, with strikingly concentrated dark fruit flavors that show liqueur-like intensity. Finishes very long, with firm but harmonious tannins and superb persistence. (JR) Inner quote mark (7/2012)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A dark, brooding and dense wine, delivering dried cherry, carpaccio and spice flavors, which linger on the broad finish. Has layers and layers of depth, all balled up and waiting to open with time. (HS) Inner quote mark (4/2012)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This is a Shiraz from vineyards in Ebenezer, a northern district of Barossa with significant assets of ancient, dry-farmed bush vines. Soft notes of black cherry and leather lend this wine its charm, a smooth blend with sunny brightness in the fruit. It comes across as bold, honeyed and rich rather than sweet. For braised meats. Inner quote mark (10/2012)

K&L Notes

Dark purple with youthful hues on release, the nose of this very young wine is a compelling mix of dark stone fruits, coffee, and blackberries. This 2010 is supremely focused while being rich and rewarding on the palate. The flavors are intense yet restrained, showing brooding dark fruit characters with cracked pepper hints, some minerality, and great complexity. The astounding purity of expression and multilayered structure will allow this wine to mature with elegance for decades to come.
