Blackberry and mulberry fruits with licorice and cracked pepper sing of Central Victorian Shiraz; a touch of Viognier thrown in for aromatic lift. Immediately approachable in its youth, this regional benchmark has the structure and concentration to age gracefully.
Opaque ruby. Pungent red and dark berries on the nose, with a suave floral quality adding vivacity. Spicy raspberry and cherry flavors become sweeter with air and supple tannins gather strength on the back end. Maintains focus and energy through a long, juicy finish. This is an outstanding value.
The purple-colored 2006 Shiraz contains 2% Viognier. Fragrant and expressive it offers up a nose of scorched earth, mineral, blueberry, and blackberry. Ripe and smooth textured, it has excellent depth and length. It will benefit from another two years of cellaring and be at its best from 2010 to 2018.
Bright and lively, with a distinct eucalyptus character breezing through the berry and spice flavors. Balanced toward refinement, not power. Best from 2010 through 2016.
