The nose shows notes of higher pitched dark red fruits, then broader blueberry plumpness, and a hint of chocolate along with a subtle earth and spice component aromatically. Fuller bodied and layered the palate offers the generosity one expects from the producer and the region (Mclaren Vale), with riper, sleek tannins offering enough grip to focus the fruit. Expressive and totally engaging with its mouth coating, plump black fruit flavors, sweet but not candied, there is a savory chocolate edge to the fruit reflective of its origins. Generous but not over the top, this is a wine that you will actually love to have a second glass and then a third. As good as this is now this should really come to together over the next 6 months to a year and make some serious inroads into a category that is in need of wines with a personality and character like this. At under $20 this really delivers the goods.
The 2008 Red Silk Shiraz is opaque purple/black with a bouquet of cedar, damp earth, lavender, incense, black raspberry, and blueberry preserves, Rich, concentrated and layered on the palate, it is loaded with sweet, savory black fruit, spices, and chocolate. Smooth-textured and lengthy, it will drink well for a decade.
Deep, vivid ruby. Powerful, pungent aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, bitter chocolate and smoky minerals. Lush, palate-saturating dark berry preserve flavors are complemented by notes of smoked meat, licorice and graphite. Supple tannins add grip to the long, sweet, clinging finish. Very young but there’s an alluring quality to its extroverted fruit.
