There are only 70 cases of the 2003 Shiraz “The Ox”. As noted above, the wine comes from a 116-year-old vineyard with microscopic yields of 0.25 – 0.50 tons per acre. It spent 24 months in old French oak and was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Saturated purple/black, this Shiraz has a hugely expressive bouquet of cedar, pepper, blueberry, blackberry liqueur, and chocolate. Full-bodied and thick on the palate, it exhibits a plush texture, a complex flavor profile, amazing depth and concentration, ripe tannins, and a finish that will not quit. It is a testament to what old vines and talented winemaking can achieve. Congratulations to Southern Starz for discovering this gem. (JM)
