    Winemaker's Notes:

    Not your blockbuster warm-climate Aussie Shiraz, this is a more elegant example reminiscent of violets, pink peppercorns, nutmeg and caramelized quince and mulberries. The palate is likewise restrained, offering fruit compote with slightly meaty undertones. 94% Shiraz and 6% Viognier. Viognier rounds out the Shiraz and adds lovely aromatics and floral characteristics.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 Shiraz-Viognier (6%) is opaque purple-colored with a spicy perfume of lavender, incense, bacon, and blueberry. Round, ripe, and easy-going on the palate, it can be enjoyed over the next 5-6 years.

    Deep ruby. Smoky black raspberry, mocha and dried violet on the nose, along with a mineral hint. Sweet, concentrated and youthfully firm, with sexy red and blackberry flavors supported by good balancing acidity. The finish repeats the dark berry and mineral notes and clings with very good spicy persistence. This should be great with food.
