    Winemaker's Notes:

    The cooler 2011 vintage imparted more savory and spice notes to the usual black and blue fruit. Traditional, low intervention winemaking techniques were employed allowing the wine to be approachable in its youth, but with ample structure and fruit depth to allow great age-ability under good cellaring conditions, for at least 8-10 years. Dense ruby purple in color. Elegant palate with blackberry fruit, complexed with savory notes of clove and pepper. Fine tannins and mineral acidity give balance.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright violet. Fresh black and blue fruits on the nose and palate, with peppery spice and floral notes adding complexity. Lithe and precise, with strong lift and back-end cut. Picks up a smoky quality with air and finishes sweet, seamless and long. Approachable now, especially with an hour or so in a decanter.

    International Wine Cellar

    Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2011 Entity Shiraz is attractively scented of crushed blackberries, red plums and mulberries with underlying Szechuan pepper and Provencal herb hints. Medium to full-bodied, it has a good concentration of red and black berry flavors in the mouth marked by an herbal streak and a vibrant acid backbone. It finishes long and chewy. Drink it now to 2020+.
