The very essence of blackberry pastille mixed with spicy vanillin oak; roasted meat and black olive are on the bouquet; the palate is unctuous and warm, yet is still looking for some time for all parts to come together... The very essence of blackberry pastille mixed with spicy vanillin oak; roasted meat and black olive are on the bouquet; the palate is unctuous and warm, yet is still looking for some time for all parts to come together. Unashamedly at the large end of the spectrum, there is a depth of fruit and complexity that will satisfy lovers of the style, and see it evolve with grace over the coming years.`

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Fat of the Land Greenock Shiraz has creme de cassis, blueberry pie filling and mocha on the nose with nuances of violets, cinnamon stick and vanilla. Full-bodied and richly fruited with mouth-filling blackberry and spice flavors, it is supported by medium to firm, fine-grained tannins, crisp acid and a long finish. Drink it now to 2022+. - LPB

High-pitched, spicy aromas of candied red fruits, violet and lavender, with a hint of vanilla adding depth. Sappy, seamless and penetrating raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are both concentrated and lively, picking up sexy floral and spicecake nuances with air. Finishes sweet and very long, with slow-building tannins and excellent clarity. - Josh Raynolds
