    Winemaker's Notes:

    Healthy rains in winter and spring set up the vines perfectly and allowed for stress free conditions from veraison to harvesting. On the nose the 2008 shiraz shows earthy gravel, spicy licorice and dense dark mulberries, while the sweet upfront berry fruit presented on tasting gives way to complex cedar, earth and spice notes, wrapping up with ample structure and grip. The vibrant, juicy fruit runs the length of the palate and lingers with a "have another glass" finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Polished and round, with raspberry, blackberry and spice flavors that dance easily over the fine tannins on the finish. Drink now. 7,000 cases imported.

    Offers plenty of intensity and suppleness, but lacks a touch of freshness. Still, its dark flavors of cooked-down fruit offer enjoyment over the near term when paired with the right dish, like a savory meatloaf.

    Deep ruby-red. Blackcurrant, mocha, licorice and spices on the smoky nose. Juicy, spicy and firm-edged, with a medicinal quality to its dark fruit flavors. Pretty serious for the price point, showing no easy sweetness and finishing with solid back-end grip and an echoing licorice note.

    International Wine Cellar

    Purple-colored, it exhibits a nose of violets, plums, and blueberry. Easy-going and friendly on the palate, it has plenty of ripe flavor and a smooth finish.

    The Wine Advocate

    There’s good juice at the heart of this wine, blueberry scented fruit surrounded by coffee like tannins and gingery acidity. It’s thick and ripe, for a charry steak or seared duck breast.

    I like this shiraz. It is peppery and has a bold splash of flavors. Good value for a flavorful shiraz.

    Excellent everyday wine in the Aussie shiraz style--fruity, but modest on the pepper. Ratings it has received in the high 80s seem about right to me.
