Winemaker Notes

Nose: Dark rose flowers, violets and raspberry coulis. Carmelized Spanish onions and balsamic vinegar. Asian spices and soy.

Palate: Earthy, rain on granite. Roasted beetroot and chocolate.

Cellar: Drink now or hide in the cellar for 3-10 years for additional complexity.

The chocolate, berry fruit, pepper, and spice characteristics found in the 2004 Shiraz Jones Block Sexton are alluring. A deeper, more layered effort than the Pinot Noir, it possesses good density, ripeness, size, and balance. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
