Brothers in Arms Blend #6 Langhorne Creek Shiraz Cabernet, 2004

 Screwcaps were used for the first time at Brothers in Arms with this 2004 vintage. The winery considers it a success, and so do I. The wine has developed nicely and is now in a good drinking window that I suspect will last for some time. And, of course, it is not corked.

Deep and dark. Very black fruited bouquet: blackberries, black currants and French oak. Shiraz Cab traits of chocolate on the palate along with black fruits, spice and black licorice. Very intense finish.

Langhorne Creek is one of my favorite Aussie appellations, and the grapes for this wine come from the Metala vineyard, one of the oldest in the country. Old vine intensity is apparent. I like it.
