This year Ares is black on black in colour. The immediate bouquet throws you roasted meat, pain grillé, dried herbs, both blue and black berries, sage, warm earth and tea leaf. The palate is silky and soft. It caresses your tongue and then rolls straight to the late palate. This pull the magic act of being a big wine in a small wine’s body: It creeps up on you slowly and effortlessly, Man this is a seriously fun ride! It rolls and and rolls along and the tannins never really seem to dissolve or stop; pure silk is the best way to describe it. In the end you’re left searching for the acidity, fruit and tannins as they are all so welded together. Nothing sticks out in this wine, its Barossa Shiraz at it best. This wine has a very long life ahead of it and it will age effortlessly for 25 year plus. Sit back, pull the cork and enjoy the ride, you will not be disappointed.
