    Winemaker's Notes:

    This is a big, full-bodied Shiraz, showing colors of inky, deep red and purple hues. The nose displays ripe red/black fruit aromas, floral notes, strawberries, black cherry, raspberry, sweet fruity oak, charry and black pepper. The palate is rich and concentrated, with plummy, licorice, cherry, blackberry and some charry, toasty oak. The tannins are finely grained and well integrated.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Deep colour; abundant flavour fills the mouth; black fruits, licorice, dark chocolate, prune and plum. The tannins are excellent, fine and ripe, the oak well-handled; best for some years. Do you buy this wine, or pay almost five times as much for The Armagh? An invidious question, perhaps.

    The 2004 Shiraz "The McRae Wood" spent 17 months in predominantly American oak and was bottled unfiltered. It is a glass-coating inky purple with an expressive bouquet of pain grille, pepper, pencil lead, bacon, and blueberry. Intense, mouth-filling and structured, it will evolve for 3-5 years and drink well through 2020.

    Wow. I was intrigued by the description so I just had to try the wine with hints of blueberry, pencil lead and bacon. I was not disappointed. the smokey flavor came through. Smooth but bold enogh to stand up to heavy foods.
