WA 92pts. According to the Wine Advocte: The Ball Buster blend has been an annual Best Buy and, even at the current asking price, the 2007 The Ball Buster is an awesome value (at least for hedonists). It is composed of 72% Shiraz, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 11% Merlot aged for 12 months in seasoned French and American oak. Opaque purple-colored, it has a nose of cedar, leather, spice box, and blueberry that leaps from the glass. This is followed by a plush, full-bodied wine with gobs of flavor and superior length. This easy-to-understand effort defines the meaning of over-delivering and will do so for another four yearsTasting Notes - On the nose, intense aromas of blackcurrent, stewed plums, bing cherry, and rich milk chocolate. On the palate, the wine is full bodied with loads of wild berry and a sweet long-lasting finish.
