Its smoky perfume of blackberry liqueur intermixed with cherries acacia flowers and espresso roast is followed by a full-throttle multi-layered palate as well as a 60-second finish. This stunning Shiraz should drink well for 10-15+ years.

Framed with oak but not at all woody. The finish rolls along unperturbed by the fine-grained tannins. Best from 2008 through 2020. 1200 cases made.

Boysenberry blueberry dark plum baking spices smoked meat cured tobacco and a hint of graphite on the flamboyant nose. Explosively flavored and rich with lush dark berry plum preserve and fruitcake flavors lifted by notes of candied licorice and minerals. A sweet fat wine that's also focused even elegant with a suave spicy finish featuring big but harmonious tannins. Shows impressive energy for the vintage too.
