The cork, the Surgeon General's warning on the back label, and the declaration that the wine has not been fined or filtered tells you where most of this wine is headed; the palate underlines the likely destination, with layers of ripe and rich blackberry, licorice and plum fruit; the tannins are ripe, the oak controlled.

Deep garnet colored with a touch of brick tones, the 2008 Noble Baron Shiraz has notes of mature mulberries, kirsch and dried plum notes over sandalwood, tobacco, potpourri and baking spices. Full bodied, richly fruited and mature in the mouth, it has a medium to firm level of rounded tannins, enlivening acid and a long, layered finish. Drink it now and over the next 5-7 years. - LPB

Fresh, perfumed aromas of black and blue fruits, licorice, cracked pepper and violet, along with some sexy oak spices. Broad, supple and sweet, with very good depth to the lively blackberry and licorice pastille flavors. This shapely, energetic shiraz shows no hard edges, finishing with supple tannins and excellent spicy persistence. - Josh Raynolds

Ripe and aromatic, brimming with cherry and spice, with a fresh feel to the flavor profile as this lingers on the rich, powerful finish. Drink now through 2016. 500 cases made. –HS
