Winemaker's Notes

Inky purple with a dark center and a youthful edge

Black cherries, dark plums and cassis aromas.

A full-bodied wine with a velvety mouth feel. Dark berry characters, spice box and liquorice mingle on the palate. Enjoy over the next 5-8 years

Critical Acclaim

"A good value in old vine Barossa Shiraz, the inky/ruby/purple-hued 2005 Shiraz Stonehorse (100% Shiraz from 15- to 45-year-old vines aged in used oak for 15 months) exhibits an explosive nose of sweet black cherries, cassis, tar, spice box, and licorice. This full-bodied, sexy, up-front effort is impossible to resist. Enjoy it over the next 4-5 years."

Very tasty. A little on the expensive side to drink every day, but really worth every cent. I had to hunt down a few extras to keep on hand.
