Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Rich magenta with a ruby hue. Intense fruit aromas of blackberries, mulberries and boysenberries combine with hints of black pepper, anise, violets and gardenias to produce a vibrant and aromatic wine.

Soft and supple upon entry, the wine extends to offer concentrated flavors of cracked black pepper, anise and coriander. Delicate and opulent, the mouthfeel is further enhanced by soft and velvety tannins to provide a signature cool climate Shiraz.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright purple hue; a lifted and highly aromatic wine, with lots of spice permeating the generous palate of red and black fruits; very long, fine and quite silky with ample fruit and a vivacious finish."
95 Points

"There's tension between the sweet red berry flavors of this wine and the more savory, beefy, sanguine side. Ripe, wild strawberry flavors persist through the finish along with suave tannins that have the scent of pencil lead. It's supple and accessible over the next several years with game, such as roast saddle of venison."
92 Points

"A luscious mouthful of red plum, raspberry and blueberry fruit poised artfully against hints of white chocolate, mineral and nutmeg as the flavors wax and linger effectively. Drink now through 2015. 800 cases imported."
