    Winemaker's Notes:

    "The 2005 Shiraz The Mad Hatter is opaque purple in color with glass-coating glycerin. It offers aromas of cedar, smoke, scorched earth, tar, espresso, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. This is followed by a full-bodied wine with gobs of fruit, a plush texture, layers of flavor, ripe tannins, and a lengthy finish. Give it 5-7 years in the bottle and drink it through 2030."
    The Wine Advocate, Jay Miller

    Critical Acclaim:

    Deep, bright ruby. Vivid strawberry and raspberry aromas are alluringly perfumed and complicated by fresh rose and violet. Juicy and seamless on the palate, with weighty, pure red berry compote and cherry-cola flavors, fine-grained tannins and excellent finishing lift and cut. This reminded me of a sexy New World pinot noir.

    From a vineyard in Blewitt Springs, this Shiraz ages for close to two years in new French oak. That, plus additional bottle age, has transformed the fruit into chocolate bliss. The tannins are silky, giving scents of black tea and Asian spices. A warm and spicy winter red to pour with rack of lamb.
