    Winemaker's Notes:

    Rich and robust, this exuberant charmer shows ripe black fruit and spice, with a lovely toasty finish. Full bodied. Will reward cellaring.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Nicely rendered, with a powerful core of dark plum and crushed currant fruit held in check by lots of graphite, espresso and roasted earth. A dark undertow moves through the finish. Needs to settle in a bit, but there's plenty here. Best from 2012 through 2014. 56 cases imported.

    Balanced and complex with herbal aromas of forest floor and sweet smoke married to the dense fruity core of black cherry, blueberry and juicy black plum. The organic dark fruit flavors continue on to dominate the satiny mouth, while a black pepper and espresso flavor unfolds on the finish.

    Good full red-ruby. Perfumed aromas of wild blueberry and licorice lifted by flowers and pepper. At once dense and juicy, with a restrained sweetness to its intense berry and pepper flavors. Shows a hint of meat but this is not a particularly animal style of shiraz. Bright acidity and a deep spice character give the wine energy and aromatic persistence.
