No shrinking violet, this rendition captures the brightness of the vintage with fragrant red and black fruits, mocha, licorice and sage on the bouquet; the palate offers a succulent core of vibrant red fruits, fresh acidity and a long, pure and evenly balanced conclusion; there is plenty of wood here, but the fruit handles it with aplomb.

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 The McRae Wood Shiraz has pleasingly vibrant black and blue fruits scents with a hint of mint, chocolate, and some rose plus smoky bacon accents. Medium to full-bodied with medium-firm, fine tannins, the palate is rich with a great fruit core and long finish. It is approachable now and will drink to 2022+. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Ripe black and blue fruits on the nose, with suggestions of cocoa powder, woodsmoke and licorice adding complexity. Fleshy and smooth, offering sweet cassis and blackberry flavors that expand with air. In a plush, forward style but not lacking for energy. Finishes spicy and very long, with lingering smokiness and supple, well-knit tannins. - Josh Raynolds

This supple, powerful and elegant red offers dill and kale overtones to its rich flavors of blackberry and plum fruit, all coming together seamlessly on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 100 cases imported. –HS

Still youthfully blunt, this wine shows some gravitas in its extract while the flavors race past it in notes of licorice, cool, dark plum fruit and mint notes that keep juicing up long after each taste. The alcohol is in balance with the wine’s weight. Give this a few years to grow into itself.
