    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine is a deep, crimson red, and has lifted pure aromatics of darker berry fruits and spice: blackberries, plums, mocha, toasty vanilla oak. The palate is powerful and extremely focused, with great depth of fruit character that is well framed by fine tannin, and drawn together to a long finish by naturally balanced acidity.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Excellent deep crimson-purple; first and last a demonstration of regional character, with lush black plum in a wrapping of dark chocolate, anise and spice; pleasantly savoury tannins on the finish.

    Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 G.A.M. Shiraz gives notes of blackberry preserves, warm black plums and creme de cassis over olives, underbrush, Ceylon tea and mace, plus a hint of dark chocolate. Full bodied and richly fruited in the mouth, it has a medium level of finely grained tannins, lively acid and a long finish. Drink it now to 2019.

    The Wine Advocate

    This rich red is redolent of tobacco, roasted game and spices around a core of dark cherry and berry flavors, playing against fine tannins. Best from 2014 through 2020.

    Deep, dark purple. Pungent aromas of boysenberry and blackberry are complemented by dried flowers, smoky oak and black tea. Sappy, concentrated dark fruit flavors show a velvety texture and assertive spiciness, with no rough edges and a late peppery note. Finishes with very good precision and resonating vanilla and blue fruit notes. This benefits from decanting. 91(+?) Points
