    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2005 Shiraz expresses oodles of spicy dark berry fruits, plums, cassis and earthy mint. On the palate, it's a succulent thunderbolt of pure Shiraz, right down to the last gulp. Made with structure and grip, the vibrant, juicy length lingers with a clean "have another glass" finish. Drink now or hide in the cellar for 3 years.

    87 Points

    "The 2005 Shiraz is purple-colored with aromas of smoke and blueberry. Medium-bodied, with ample spicy fruit, it offers good concentration, depth, and balance. Drink it over the next 2-3 years."

    "Fresh and lively, with a smoky edge to the blackberry and cherry flavors."
    Wine Spectator

    88 Points

    "Dark red. Youthful pepper-accented cassis and blackberry on the nose, with a suggestion of cracked pepper. Fleshy in texture, with jammy dark berry flavors, soft acidity and a hint of floral pastille. Very persistent sweet blackberry and kirsch on the finish. Vaguely liqueur-like but there's good acid lift and thrust here. Remains just this side of sweet." Stephen Tanzer's

    This is a great easy drinking Shiraz. I think it is smooth and very flavorful. It is consistently in my wine rack.

    Went over well with friends and dinner. Blackberry and plum evident and somewhat spicy. Would purchase again.
