Deep crimson in colour. Aromas of sweet, lifted, spicy blueberries, plums, blackberries, anise and mace, with stone-fruit and floral hints. Showing soft, rich and bright spicy peppery fruit on the palate. The texture is juicy and lush with layers of velvety tannins and great length.
"The 2006 Henry’s Seven is composed of 65% Shiraz, 20% Grenache, 8% Mourvedre, and 7% Viognier aged for 14 months in seasoned oak. Dark ruby-colored, it exhibits an expressive nose of cedar, mineral, black cherry, black raspberry, and blueberry. On the palate this full-bodied effort offers racy flavors, plenty of spice, outstanding depth and grip, and a silky finish. It can be enjoyed over the next six years."
The Wine Advocate
"Roughly two-thirds Shiraz, the 2006 Henry’s Seven is a lush, full-bodied blend that combines dark, feral notes of cola and cured meats with brighter red-fruit flavors and an herbal tinge. It’s a bit warm on the finish, but that only serves to accentuate its spicy complexity. Drink now–2012."
"A lively, approachable, soft and silky blend where all of the parts play a role; right now the viognier dominates with accentuated florals, but over time the more robust character of the other varieties will shine. Shiraz/Grenache/Mourvedre/Viognier."
Australian Wine Companion
"A solid red, with distinctly peppery character carrying through from the first whiff to the final sip, offering dark berry and black olive flavors. Some won't like the touch of bitterness on the finish, but this feels balanced. Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Viognier. Drink now through 2012."
