    Winemaker's Notes:

    Concentration, complexity and ripe tannins. Intense dried fruits, and secondary characters of spice and cedary oak. Well balanced and full bodied wine.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2005 3 Rings Shiraz was sourced from vineyards averaging 85 years of age and was raised for 36 months in French oak demi-muids. It is purple/black in color with a superb, brooding nose of pain grille, pencil lead, mineral, smoked meat, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. This is followed by a full-bodied, layered, thick, rich Shiraz which will require a minimum of five years of further cellaring to begin unwinding. This full-throttle effort should offer prime drinking from 2013 to 2030.

    The Wine Advocate

    Supple, fleshy and generous with its sweet blackberry, espresso and dark chocolate flavors, focused into a long and expressive finish. Drink now through 2017. 500 cases made.

    I'm always a little skeptical of wines with a twist off cap but this is a great wine. Had it with a London broil and it paired up very nicely. Afterwards I finished it off with a Cain Nub 464 cigar and it was a perfect match!! It was buttery smooth with a great fruity nose. I'm ordering more as soon as I'm done with this review!!
