The Shiraz was sourced from a 45-year-old vineyard and the wine was aged in French oak 35% new. Purple-colored the nose reveals toasty oak mineral licorice black raspberry and blueberry. Medium-bodied and elegant the wine offers layers of savory flavors outstanding depth and a long smooth finish. The wine has enough stuffing to permit 5-7 years of further evolution in bottle but can be enjoyed now and over the next 12-15 years. -Jay Miller

A very attractive medium-bodied wine with plum blackberry and black cherry fruit; good length restrained alcohol and fine tannins.

Best from 2009 through 2017... Ripe and supple showing a distinct black pepper note running through the rich cherry and sweet leather flavors with the fruit lingering on the plush finish.

A beautiful red with plum and spices and hints of dried meats. Medium-to-full body with soft and medium tannins with a savory finish. This has held up beautifully. Lovely old school. Drink now.

Fleshy and sweet with deep red berry preserve flavors supple tannins and a late note of cola. This is very open right now and showing excellent finishing sweetness but I suspect it will gain complexity with a few years of additional bottle aging. 90+
