What makes the 2009 Velvet Glove Shiraz near perfect is the amazingly rich, velvety texture that has a finish that goes in your mouth for over 30 seconds. The wine has layers upon layers of rich fruit with raspberry, blackberry, plum, jam and spice seamlessly integrated with ample tannins to make this age gracefully for years to come. Anyone looking for a seductive, rich, viscous, and multi-layered Shiraz powerhouse should taste this wine. 99 points, Brian Pasch, www.weloveshiraz.com
