    Winemaker's Notes:

    Cabernet Sauvignon 52%, Shiraz 32%, Merlot 17%.

    To the eye, the wine is a bright ruby bed.

    On the nose, the wine offers aromas of strawberries, candy floss and dark ripe cherries. Shows sleek oak spice and a delicate smoked bacon essence infused with a leathery feel from the Shiraz.

    The palate is refined, with good body and a richly structured mid palate. Shiraz seems to dominate the palate and gives a juicy feel to the wine.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark berries, wild herbs, licorice and menthol on the nose. Then surprisingly lush on the palate, with sweet, spicy flavors of black cherry, plum, licorice and sexy smoky oak. Nicely integrated acidity gives this wine very good vinosity. Finishes with dusty but easygoing tannins and juicy persistence.
