    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 Pillar Box Reserve has dark inky color and bright purple edges. It was selected from the best parcels of Shiraz and is a rich and densely concentrated wine. Intense blackcurrant aromas combine with toasted spice and graphite minerality to give a complex and lifted bouquet. The palate is fleshy at the start; showing ripe plum and blackcurrant fruits, then building in the mid palate with graphite, cedar toast and Indian marsala spice characters. The tannins are fine and velvety, leading into a refined and gratifying finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Rich and expressive, a wild ride of ripe blackberry, licorice, coffee and spice flavors that gain momentum with every sip. This has power, style and grace.

    The 2008 Pillar Box Reserve Shiraz spent 8 months in French and American oak. Purple-colored, it delivers an alluring nose of cedar, lavender, pepper, and blueberry. Concentrated and layered on the palate, it has more than ample succulent fruit, good balance, and enough structure to ensure 4-5 years of pleasurable drinking.
