The 2004 Tribal Elder Shiraz was produced from tiny yields of 1 ton per acre. It was aged for 26 months in 2 year old French oak. Dark ruby-colored, the wine has a complex bouquet of cedar, pepper, violets, grilled bacon, and blueberry with a hint of chocolate in the background. This is followed by an elegant, balanced, northern Rhone-like Shiraz with ample ripe fruit, silky tannins, and lively acidity in a harmonious package. It will evolve for 6–8 years and drink well through 2024.

From the cool climate Yarra Valley, the 2004 Shiraz Tribal Elder spent over two years in French oak. This complex, European-styled offering is not totally dissimilar from a top-notch Rhone Valley St.-Joseph or Crozes-Hermitage. It exhibits aromas of crushed rocks, mint, damp earth, black cherries, and berries. Medium to full-bodied with good acidity as well as abundant flavor, depth, and intensity, it is a complex, deep Shiraz to consume over the next decade.
