    Winemaker's Notes:

    This robust, Rhône-inspired bottling from the heralded Thelema estate charms with enticing flavors of blackberry, black currant, and pepper and an alluring earthy character. Notes of dark chocolate, toasty oak, and spice carry through on the long finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Richly layered, with suave mocha and cocoa notes running through lush blackberry, fig and raspberry ganache notes. Long, alluring finish is finely grained. Drink now through 2010.

    A dark, savory shiraz, this lasts on meaty spice. Its generous fruit is clean and well preserved, feeling fresh. Decant it to bring some oxygen to the tannins, then serve with flank steak, seared rare.
