Winemaker Notes

A superb handcrafted wine of complexity and intensity. Deep garnet red in color, displaying complex aromas of blackberry, spice, plum and licorice that give way to a subtle integration of smoky, vanillin oak. The palate is full of fleshy dark cherry and bramble fruit with dark chocolate nuances and savory notes of leather and spice on the finish. This wine has excellent tannin structure and balanced acidity.

Critical Acclaim

JH 93
Australian Wine Companion

The cork, the Surgeon General's warning on the back label, and the declaration that the wine has not been fined or filtered tells you where most of this wine is headed; the palate underlines the likely destination, with layers of ripe and rich blackberry, licorice and plum fruit; the tannins are ripe, the oak controlled.

ST 91
International Wine Cellar

Glass-staining purple. Fresh, perfumed aromas of black and blue fruits, licorice, cracked pepper and violet, along with some sexy oak spices. Broad, supple and sweet, with very good depth to the lively blackberry and licorice pastille flavors. This shapely, energetic shiraz shows no hard edges, finishing with supple tannins and excellent spicy persistence.
