Full bodied and decadent on the palate with loads of fruit but also superb balance and serious length this is approachable and stunning now but should easily evolve and age gracefully for 15+ years. collapse

James Halliday, February 2009
A very fragrant bouquet attests to the influence of viognier which also may be part of the reason why the palate does not show the high alcohol and is simply supple and velvety even showing a hint of spice. Shiraz.

Heady aromas of black raspberry, blueberry pie, potpourri, sandalwood and patchouli, with a strong mineral quality adding urgency. Completely stains the palate with deep black and blue fruit flavors but possesses uncanny energy, picking up smoky mineral and Asian spice nuances with air. At once creamy and nervy; this hits every corner of the palate. The floral element returns on the finish, which features sappy boysenberry and candied licorice qualities and leaves nervy spice and mineral notes behind. Where are the tannins? Offers an extraordinary combination of concentration, power and elegance. -- Josh Raynolds collapse

No sharp edges, no drying tannins, just a mouthful of pleasure, ending with hints of espresso and dark chocolate. Drink now–2016. collapse
