    Winemaker's Notes:

    A dense crimson red, this wine has distinctive characters of cedar, fresh spices and stalky redcurrants combine with black cherry fruits and black olives. The medium to full bodied palate is layered with sweet fruit compote and dark fruits. A richly concentrated wine wrapped in a fine package, complete with long, fine grainy tannins. Built to handle at least ten years in the cellar.

    Match with char-grilled T-bone steak, chunky fries and hollandaise.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Medium crimson-purple; a wine with a long and proud history dating back to the 1970s; a totally harmonious blend of the two varieties, blackcurrant, blackberry, plum and black cherry woven together with fine tannins and quality oak. A perfect example of a medium-bodied red wine.

    Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, 2009 FDR 1A Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz presents an earthy / meaty / savory character with notes of game, soy, damp loam and yeast extract over a core of black cherries and blackberries with touches of white pepper, Mediterranean herbs and cloves. Concentrated and taut in the mouth, it offers a solid backbone of medium to firm level grainy tannins and crisp acidity, finishing long and savory.
