There is deep discounting available on the 2015 Amon-Ra Shiraz. This Wine gets big point scores from everybody, we have included those below. The flavor profile is massive and succulent and it should be. The vintage is exceptional and the Amon- Ra is produced from vines ranging from 50- 130 years old, all from the original Hermitage clone. When vines struggle to survive for that time period the depth and layering is magnified. This wine is big yet elegant with defiant layers of redcurrant and raspberry turning darker to boysenberry and finally blueberry with enticing coffee and bitter sweet chocolate.
The low on the net is $80.00, it goes in increments up to $120. The average is $90.00
All the best, Rex & Michele
Did Rex mention Hermitage? Yeah!!! I love it. It is gorgeous. One of my favorite wines to drink in the fall!! m

Winemaker Ben Glaetzer continues to fashion big, bold Barossa Valley Shiraz. The 2015 Amon Ra Shiraz is another in a long line of muscular wines that manage to offer complexity, power and a surprising degree of elegance. Charred beef, black olives and espresso notes meet blackberries and cassis on the nose and palate, delivering near-tidal waves of flavor and personality. Full-bodied, intense and velvety, it should age well for at least a decade, but I wouldn't be surprised to see it still drinking well past 2030 (assuming proper cellaring, of course).
95 points Vinous
Inky purple. Explosive black and blue fruit, vanilla, Indian spices and floral scents show superb clarity and pick up a smoky nuance with aeration. Coats the palate with sweet blueberry, cherry-vanilla, cola and fruitcake flavors that show an uncanny blend of richness and vivacity. Finishes with outstanding energy and thrust and serious persistence; supple tannins lend shape. A large-scaled, emphatically fruity wine and, at 15.5 percent (declared) alcohol, no poster child for elegance, but I find it almost shockingly graceful for its sheer depth and mass.
94 point Wine Enthusiast, Cellar Selection
From Barossa's newest generation of superstar winemakers, Ben Glaetzer's Amon-Ra-his top wine-is the label that's gained him the most glory, and for good reason. It's hugely cellar worthy, with a pretty nose of dark cherry fruit, cola, licorice, cocoa powder and a little meatiness in the background. The medium-bodied palate is juicy and restrained, with muscular but silky tannins and a long juicy, savory finish; The perfect example of the elegant style the latest generation of Barossa producers excel at. While approachable now, it would drink best between 2022-2032.

Rich, velvety blackberry and plum flavors show toasted walnut and sandalwood accents in this rich and generous red, which is spicy and detailed on the long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2030. 3,000 cases made.
93 points James Suckling
This is a heroic, sweetly-fruited cut of Barossa shiraz that has a big wave of ripe boysenberry and blackberry fruit flavor. Sweetly spicy, vanilla-dusted oak influence and an approachable, juicy resolve."
