Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 70% Shiraz and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Parson's Flat has a dense ripe cherry color, with a purple hue. The nose displays a concentrated array of mixed forest berries, smoky cigar box, spicy pepper, clove, caramel and mocha. An initial sweet, concentrated explosion of luscious blackberry on the palate leads to savoury spice, coffee bean and liquorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is still evident, contributing some attractive leafy and spearmint/peppermint flavors. Firm and granular tannins leave the mouth with a persistent coating. A finely-tuned blend that allows both varieties to express themselves.

Critical Acclaim

"Good weight and concentration; ripe black fruits with touches of spice, licorice and chocolate."
