TN: 2006 AMON-Ra Shiraz

A friend brought this to dinner last night and I'm just finishing off the left over this morning. Way too soon to be drinking this huge wine. Thick, purple ink in color, almost black. Flavors of spices, blueberrys, vanilla and coffee. Thick and full on the palate, yet after airing for 12 hours, still huge and tight. If you have any of this, put it in the cellar and hide it for at least 5 years and drink over the next 20.

    This is my favorite Amon Ra out of the bottle without age. It will be fun to see what is does in 5 or 10years.
