    Winemaker's Notes:

    Initially the nose is dominated by lifted Shiraz notes of sweet, plums and rich, dark licorice. As the wine opens, the cocktail of varieties clinging to the Shiraz becomes more evident. At first, pretty, perfumed notes are revealed. Think musk and violets. Then the more exotic aromatics of warm, Indian spices and freshly turned earth appear. The complexity is just as provocative on the palate. A lovely cooked rhubarb character adds sweetness but vibrant acidity at the same time. The sweet fruits are balanced with restraining savory notes of cured meat and black olive.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Deep garnet; a fragrant red fruited bouquet, with a floral lift and a touch of mocha spice; the palate is fleshy and generous, with a fresh acid backbone and an intriguing note of orange peel, a lingering character to the finish.

    Dark purple. Smoky, spice-accented aromas and flavors of cassis and blueberry, with a suave incense nuance building with air. Fleshy but light on its feet, offering tangy dark fruit flavors that gain sweetness in the glass. Closes with very good energy and focus, trailing notes of peppery spice.

    For a big and bold Shiraz I found it to be surprisingly uninteresting. Disappointing based on the professional reviews. Wouldn't buy it again at any price.
