    Winemaker's Notes:

    Delivers a nice whiff of white pepper and clove as well as some sweet earth underpinnings meshed with a note of ripe dark raspberry and blackberry fruit. The palate has an engaging, expansive feel, medium-fuller bodied, with smooth tannins wrapped around spicy dark cherry and black raspberry flavors. This should be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years to maximize its fruit vibrancy.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Interesting; while not having the weight of McLaren Vale, avoids the cosmetic/jammy nuances the Barossa often has; instead, bright red cherry and raspberry fruits plus fine, silky tannins; good length. Grenache/Shiraz.

    The seductive, peppery, spicy, earthy, dark plum/ruby-hued 2004 The Old Barossa Blend (75% Grenache and 25% Shiraz) possesses abundant amounts of kirsch and black fruit characteristics as well as a hint of wood in the background. This savory red should be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years.
