99 Pts Jay Miller - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2004 F.U. Shiraz (200 cases [12 bottles per case]) is similarly brooding and liqueur-like. It spent 30 months in new French oak hogsheads and offers a compelling bouquet of toasty oak, pencil lead, mineral, blueberry, and blackberry. Lighter on its feet than The Wine with a more forward personality, it has layers of flavor, savory fruit, and enough silky tannin to evolve for a decade. Drink it from 2014 to 2034." -99 points- Jay Miller- Wine Advocate

CHRIS RINGLAND'S TASTING NOTES:
"FU is one of four barrel blends, assembled from the five parcels of wine created each vintage for this ultra premium, individual vineyard Barossa Shiraz program. In 2004, the FU selection resulted in a 200 case [12 bottles per case] blend."

"The R winemakers evaluate all of the barrels blind, so as not to be influenced by preferences for a particular barrel cooperage in the program, or the conclusions from previous tastings of the barrels. With the FU selections, we are looking for wines, which display an open expression. The fruit profile is readily identifiable and the oak overlay is rich with notes of Cedar, Molasses, Smoke, Blackberry jam and minerals." -Chris Ringland, winemaker

MORE ON THE WINE:
"This is the real deal - seriously the ultimate expression of Shiraz. The fruit for 'FU' is the sourced from the 5 best vineyard parcels from the Ebenezer vineyard with no less than 5 passes throughout harvest! Chris Ringland believes the 80-year-old parcel of Adrian Hoffman's Ebenezer Vineyard might be the finest in Australia. For those of you who know Shiraz, Ebenenzer vineyard is the source for Penfolds Grange and several other top wines from Australia." -Dan Philips

"What is 'fu'?

A big decoration bearing Chinese character "Fu", meaning blessing or good fortune, is suspended in a shopping center in Shenyang, capital of northeast China's Liaoning Province, Jan. 15, 2006. When it comes to the Chinese lunar New Year big, red Chinese characters of fu (which means happiness and blessings) are posted outside each house whether in the bustling cities or remote villages. So what is fu? Several interpretations can be given.

Fu is being affluent.
Fu is being able to avoid misfortunes.
Fu is health.
Fu is having wine.
