The Freedom 1843 Shiraz

The Freedom 1843 ShirazParker-Lisa Perrotti-Brown 95+:Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Shiraz 1843 Freedom is profoundly scented of crushed blackberries, black cherries and mulberries with suggestions of cedar, spice box, black pepper and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, the oak is standing out at this youthful stage though the intensity of fruit and firm backbone of grainy tannins and lively acid suggest this should marry with time and emerge a harmonious wine possessing glorious complexity. Forget this one in the cellar for 5-7 years. Suckling 93:Concentrated black truffle, pencil chalk, forest soil and green pepper on the nose. Roasted-red-paprika with cooked-fresh-strawberry sweetness develops the complexity. Less new oak would make this close to 95 points. Drink now or by 2016. Galloni 93:(aged for two years in 69% new French oak hogsheads and barriques): Inky ruby. Potent, smoke-accented aromas of fresh black and blue fruits, violet, candied licorice and spicecake, with a sexy vanilla quality coming up slowly with air. Sweet, broad and sappy, offering deeply concentrated blackberry and cherry liqueur flavors along with repeating smoke and vanilla notes. The impressively long, clinging, floral finish is framed by velvety, late-arriving tannins. Records indicate that these vines were planted in 1843. Compared to other examples of rare Australian wines with cult followings, this one delivers excellent value. -- Josh Raynolds
