    Winemaker's Notes:

    Color: Opaque red black, purple rim.

    Aroma: Rich jammy black fruit, with complex broody characters for tar and molasses.

    Palate: Big impact flavors flow through the palate of blackberry, chocolate and smoky oak.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is the third vintage of Chris Ringland Cote Rotie Shiraz. The 2008 was sourced from 20-60 year old Barossa vines and aged in seasoned American oak hogsheads. Deep purple-colored, it emits a captivating, already complex nose of smoke, incense, Asian spices, and blueberry. Velvety-textured, intense, full-bodied, and powerful on the palate, this rich effort will drink well for another 8-10 years. It is a steal at the modest asking price.
