    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep, vibrant purple in color with inky hues. Brooding ripe blackberry and liquorish flavors on the nose are complimented by spicy oak. The palate is rich with plums and berries balanced with integrated tannins. Great depth of flavor and silky structure show all the hallmarks of McLaren Vale Shiraz. This is a great wine now but will age gracefully for many years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark crimson-purple; has a potent bouquet of black fruits and licorice, then a rich full-bodied palate adding a dash of dark chocolate to the blackberry base. A lot of wine for the price.

    Ripe and generous on a medium-weight frame, offering blackberry and dried cherry flavors against polished tannins. Finishes with vivid flavors and a hint of coffee. Drink now through 2016. Smart Buy

    A friend gave me a bottle that we had for dinner tonight. We liked it so I looked it up and just ordered a half case for a really good house red. We are enjoying it as I write this!
