Barossa Valley Estate Ebenezer Shiraz 2004
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 7, January 4, December 16 and November 20.
Gorgeously plump and delicious! Full-bodied layers of black cherry and fleshy plums. Simply stunning!

Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
Deep blood red in appearance with quick purple hues, and a nose of lifted black cherries and plums with chocolate, mocha, pepper and some toast caramel oak tones. The palate is full, rich and ripe with firm flesh, concentration, and ripe rounded tannins. The finish is clean and long with fresh fruit flavours persisting well.
Fruit for the Ebenezer range of wines are picked predominantly from low cropping older vineyards in the northern area of the Barossa Valley, typical for wines that are rich and full bodied with intense varietal and regional character. Traditional winemaking techniques were employed to ensure fruit intensity and length, for best display of the regionality of this area.
