It was aged in 100% new oak puncheons (400 liter barrels). Opaque purple-colored this Shiraz has fabulous aromatics of smoke melted tar licorice espresso game and blueberry compote. Layered but tight this full-bodied wine is thick rich and totally hedonistic. The finish lasts for 60 seconds. However be warned. This monumental Shiraz needs 10-15 years to fully unfold. It will provide pleasure through 2035.

It's brighter fresher and more vibrant than its amply endowed precursor bursting with peppery raspberries. Creamy and rich yet wonderfully balanced and while you could drink it now it will also cellar well for 10-plus years.

Supple silky and appealing for its cherry pie cherry jam and dusky spice aromas and flavors showing enough transparency to hint at licorice and coffee around the edges. Lingers impressively on the polished harmonious finish. A lithe focused ageable red. Drink now through 2016. 600 cases imported.

Dark purple. Bright red and dark berry scents display impressive focus and clarity with subtle baking spice and vanilla notes adding complexity.

Bright red and dark berry scents display impressive focus and clarity with subtle baking spice and vanilla notes adding complexity. Very fresh-in fact almost painfully young-with nervy raspberry and cherry flavors supported by silky tannins and a jolt of acidity on the back. This opened up a bit with air but really should be cellared for at least another five years.
