This is a superb example of what Langhorne creek is all about. Deep, dense, black and brooding. It is the closest wine to the first ever Gotham 2004 Langhorne Creek Shiraz. Savoury spicy and loaded with black fruit flavors. Gentle dusty tannins provide a backdrop for this well balanced shiraz.
The Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Shiraz comes from 40-year-old vines located in Langhorne Creek. Deep garnet-purple colored, it begins with some reduction notes that soon give way to intense blackberry and warm black cherry notes with some black pepper, a pinch of dried Mediterranean herbs and a whiff of loam. The full bodied palate is a little tight with firm, fine tannins, crisp acid and restrained fruit that will probably need another six months to blossom. It has a good, long finish. Drink it 2012 to 2017.
