2003 Kaesler "Old Bastard" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

SKU #1081371 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2003 Shiraz Old Bastard is a candidate for Shiraz of the vintage from South Australia. Exhibiting an inky/purple color along with serious velocity and intensity, it is a superb expression of top-notch Barossa Valley Shiraz. A glorious perfume of charcoal, blackberry liqueur, smoke, and vanilla is followed by an enormous, but neither heavy nor over-ripe wine that is a testament to the winemaking skills of Reid Bosward. This big, pure, rich Shiraz can be drunk now or cellared for 10-15 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2005)

93 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Dense colour; massively concentrated black fruits, dark chocolate, oak, tannins and the kitchen sink; a heroic Parker style. Inner quote mark (7/2006)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep, bright ruby. Flamboyantly ripe aromas of singed blackberry, creme de cassis, peppered bacon, mocha, dried rose and oak spices, plus an exotic note of blood orange. Rich, velvety and dense, with sweet, powerful flavors of blackcurrant, fruitcake, fudge, vanilla and black olive, all lifted by a floral top note. Finishes long and sweet, with fully enveloped tannins. (JR) Inner quote mark (7/2005)
