    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2010 Basket Pressed Shiraz is dark purple with a medium to full intensity. Filled with aromas of roast beetroot, fleshy blackberries with subtle tobacco leaf and savory dried spice. Juicy, fresh briary berry fruits along with quince flavors, follow on the palate, with a rich, savory finish. The medium to full-bodied wine is held by fine acidity, as well as grainy tannins, underscored by a hint of wood smoke derived from the maturation in larger oak casks.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Deep crimson; a perfumed bouquet in keeping with regional mulberry, fruitcake and bitter chocolate expectation; the palate is lively and reveals the freshness of the vintage; medium-boded with ample levels of juicy fruit, gravelly tannins and mocha oak on the finish.

    I was rather disappointed by this particular wine. The flavor was broad and not particularly deep in complexity - rather like a plank. 2 of my guests liked it, though, and so I waited on it a little wondering it needed to breathe longer. It did improve some, but not enough to make me buy, again. Still have one bottle left. This wine was part of a shipment that arrived damaged due to the great Polar Vortex of early December. Thus, I am unsure whether this particular wine was affected or not.
