Glaetzer Amon-Ra Shiraz 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  58032

Dramatic, intense and powerful, the 2016 Amon Ra Shiraz recalls the 2004 in its youth, crammed with layers of fruit, complex, savory elements and rich, velvety tannins. It's full-bodied, characterized by notes of grilled meat, espresso, black olive, cassis, vanilla, baking spices and an undercurrent of loamy earth. Yes, it's unapologetically big and bold, the product of a warm, sunny climate and ripe grapes, but it does show a sense of decorum, restraint and elegance on the long finish. Drink date: 2018-2035. Score - 96. (Joe Czerwinski,, Aug. 31, 2018)
