    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep red color, with a lifted and intense nose of blackberry fruit, sweet spice and dark chocolate. The palate is very rich and flavorsome with blackberry and plum fruit. In addition to the primary fruit characters there is plenty of complexity in this wine with spice and earthy notes. There is heaps of mouth filling flavor complemented by chalky tannins. There is great length of fruit as well.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Smooth, polished and open-textured, with plum and blackberry flavors that show a violet note, lingering easily. Drink now through 2018.

    Also outstanding, is the 2010 Shiraz Shotfire. The good news is that there are 15,000 cases of it and discounters will offer it at less than $20 a bottle. Dark ruby/purple, with notes of roasted coconut, graphite, damp earth, blackberry and cassis, this perfumed wine hits the palate with a thunderous richness from the glycerin and dense fruit. Quite sexy, stunning, with some structured tannin in the finish, this wine should drink well for another 5-7 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    An excellent value, the 2010 Shotfire Shiraz offers bold, punched-up cherry-berry fruit framed by hints of vanilla, dried herbs and cracked pepper. It’s a big wine that's reasonably creamy in texture, with plenty of mouthcoating flavor on the finish. Drink it over the next few years.
