ROBERT PARKER RATING: 91
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The Ball Buster is a perennial Best Buy in these pages. There are 15,000 cases of Tait’s 2008 Ball Buster, a blend of 76% Shiraz, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 12% Merlot aged for 12 months in seasoned, predominantly American oak. Opaque purple-colored, it offers up a fragrant perfume of pencil lead, licorice, spice box, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Layered, savory, and long on the palate, this well-balanced, pleasure-bent effort will drink well for another 4-6 years.
STEVE TANZAR RATING: 91
STEVE TANZAR REVIEW: Inky ruby. Sexy aromas of blueberry, mulberry and candied flowers, with a suave, spicy quality adding interest. Lush and creamy in the mouth, offering weighty but lively dark berry flavors and showing no rough edges or tannins. Finishes sweet and penetrating, with the blueberry note strongly repeating.
Deep Black Purple. Intense aromas of blackcurrent, stewed plums, cherry, and chocolate. Full-bodied berry palate with a sweet long lasting finish.
