    Winemaker's Notes:

    Saturated medium ruby, aromas of dark berries, chocolate, eucalyptus and cedarwood. Juicy cranberry and currant flavors as well as licorice and herbs show depth. Integrated tannins, well balanced with an ultra smooth, lingering finish.

    Enjoy with slow roasted shoulder of lamb with anchovy and rosemary stuffing to pick up on the spiciness of the wine. And, of course, any rich meat or pasta dish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Shiraz, the 2008 Oro has a fresh, vibrant nose not dissimilar to a McClaren Vale with ebullient, mint-scented glossy black fruits. The palate is full-bodied and very rich with an almost honeyed texture. Moderately tannic, very forward and opulent with a ravishing, polished finish, this is a very modern, svelte Cabernet/Shiraz that is well crafted by winemaker Mary-Lou Nash. Sure, it is a tad on the alcoholic side, but it is deftly crafted, keenly priced and should age well. Drink 2012-2018.
