Rockford Basket Press 1998 Winemakers Release
The wine is very relaxed and open so I would say you can drink these whenever it pleases you. There is a huge amount of muscle in this wine as the flavours of leather, cherry jam and spicy earth layer themselves over my tongue. Seriously they are putting down roots or making a camping site and building a fire because they are staying for the night. This wine has an effortless swagger about it that delights the taste buds and invigorates the senses. In the end I'm left with a traditional chocolatey after taste so I'm reminded that this is a Barossa wine in fine form.
