    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2011 to Amon Ra Shiraz is balancing the fruit and tannin extraction, rather than maximizing it. The fruit has such expression that we aim to preserve the characteristics of the vineyard rather than dominate them.

    The 2011 Amon Ra reflects the absolute essence of the Amon Ra style - generosity of flavor with finesse of structure. The vivid purple color displays the intensity of youth. The nose has an abundance of dark fruits, plum, black cherry and hints of cassis with notes of mixed spice and anise. Although young and tightly wound on release, the vibrant blackberry and dried spice flavors integrate well with youthful yet supple tannins leading to a long and sleek finish.

    As with previous vintages of Amon Ra, the astounding purity of expression and multilayered structure will allow this wine to mature with elegance for decades to come.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Focused, generous and layered, with floral, bay leaf and smoky custard grace notes around a supple core of blackberry and cherry fruit, persisting on the long and expressive finish.
