Schild Estate Shiraz 2007
The color of this wine is a vibrant rich red It has a nose of ripe cherries, rich spices and licorice with some vanillin undertones, derived from the extended maturation in new and old American oak. On the palate the flavors explode in a fusion of complex oak and well integrated tannins with a backbone of ripe black plums.
Polished and generous, offering a racy mouthful of tobacco-accented cherry and black currant fruit that finishes with an edge of dried sage, licorice and fresh cream. This lingers impressively, showing amazing depth. Drink now through 2017. 8,200 cases made.
