    Winemaker's Notes:

    SHARDANA is the name for the native Sardinians — and the mysterious red symbol on the label shown above is a Phoenician S. Three thousand years later, Neil and Maria Empson chose this ancient word for their own tribute to beautiful Sardinia: a full-bodied, voluptuous red from 85% indigenous (partly pre-Phylloxera!) Carignano grapes and 15% Shiraz. The style was inspired by Sulcis' exceptional terroir and reflects the region's power-packed, layered complexity; the depth of its seas, the spicy fragrance of its ever-present winds.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This gorgeous Carignano-based wine from the sun-drenched island of Sardinia shows amazing harmony and personality. There are rich and ripe notes here of blackberry, mature cherry, tobacco, leather and a touch of exotic spice. It's rich, smooth and velvety on the close. Very nice.

    Dark ruby. Perfumed aromas of red and dark berries, with a strong salty overtone. The creamy, seamless raspberry and red cherry flavors are complicated by tobacco and candied flowers. Turns more tannic with air, finishing with a gentle licorice quality and a touch of alcoholic warmth. Still, it's a very successful wine.
