    Winemaker's Notes:

    #55 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

    Pairs with sirloin steak, veal chops, chocolate fondue, fruit cake.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dense and chewy, but after an initial hit this backs off to let the gorgeous smoke-tinged black cherry, mulberry, dried tomato and tomato leaf flavors emerge at an almost leisurely pace. There is a sense of refinement under the raw power, and the expressive finish holds on. Drink now thru 2018

    The 2009 Carnival of Love is 100% Shiraz coming from a single vineyard of 9 year old vines and matured in 97% new and 3% one year American oak. Very deep garnet-purple colored, it gives intense creme de cassis, vanilla, spice, mocha and licorice notes. Crisp and firmly structured with a high level of grainy tannins, this is a full-bodied, powerful Shiraz with a great deal of ripe dense fruit giving very good persistence. It finishes seriously spicy and just a little hot. Consider drinking this one 2012 to 2019+.
