Accolades have come from the world over for vintages such as the 1992, which was chosen by the influential wine critic Robert Parker in his U.S. magazine the Wine Advocate as one of the world's Top 80 wines. The 1995 Command was awarded 95 points by Wine Spectator and placed in their Top 100 wines; the 2000 was awarded 97 points by the same magazine and placed 27 in their Top 100. The 1996 Command won the trophy for the best Shiraz in the world at the London International Wine and Spirit Competition.
Medium crimson-purple, the hue good, although not particularly deep; a very elegant and refined shiraz that fully lives up to its reputation. Aromas of blackberry fruit, aniseed and spices carry through to the palate which is rich, warm and generous.
