Winemaker's Notes

The appearance is opaque red-black with a purple rim. The aroma is of rich brown sugar, prunes, black fruits, earth and mineral. The palate is dense, silky, rich and super-ripe. Bitumen, molasses and vanilla. Long, soft structured tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Shiraz offers up aromas of cigar box, damp earth, smoked meat, bacon, and blueberry. Packed with flavor on the palate, it is full-bodied, round, and altogether pleasure-bent. Drink it over the next 4-5 years."
