Tasting Notes:
tasted: July 26, 2009 , Marcus Hicks-Ridder
4 stars "Color: dark; Aromas: black berry; Burst of fruit! Great wine. A little alcoholic..."
rated: November 5, 2007 , The Wine Advocate erobertparker.com
92 points "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."

92 points "92 points Robert Parker: "Tait has been establishing a track record for hedonistically rendered wines at consumer friendly prices for several years. Previous vintages of this wine have been smash hits and the 2006 The Ball Buster is a lock to continue the trend. It is a 15,000 case cuvee, all of which was basket-pressed, a labor-intensive process not commonly associated with a wine in this price category. The wine is composed of 78% Shiraz, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Merlot aged for 12 months in used French and American oak. Purple-colored, it exhibits a classy bouquet of cedar, earth, tar, espresso, blueberry, black currants, and licorice. Supple, ripe and soft on the palate, this seamless, crowd-pleaser of a wine can be enjoyed now and over the next several years."
