91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Winner’s Tank Shiraz is a perennial Best Buy. It spent 9 months in tank with French oak staves. Purple-colored, it has a wonderfully expressive perfume of plum, black cherry, and blueberry compote. This leads to a full-bodied, seamless, rich wine with a long, pure finish. This is an ideal, every-day wine worth buying by the case

Winemaker's Notes:
The grapes were harvested from David and Cathy Knight’s estate vineyards. Langhorne Creek Shiraz generally suits this style of wine well as Shiraz fruit from the region has no problem reaching this level of ripeness displaying ripe berry characters. Furthermore Langhorne Creek Shiraz characteristically has a soft tannin structure that contributes to mouthfeel and early drinkablity.

The wine was fermented under temperature controlled conditions and then briefl y aged in French wood to produce a fruit driven style that shows more of the ripe shiraz characters, little oak impact, a smooth textured, glycerin laden mouthfeel and early drinking.

Exotically perfumed aromas of fresh blackberry, mulberry and mocha, accented by violet and sandalwood. Lush, impressively sweet dark berry flavors verge on jammy but maintain energy thanks to lively minerality. Fine-grained tannins build on the long, juicy finish. Extremely impressive for the price and utterly delicious right now.” - Tanzer
