A blend of 96% Shiraz and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Dense, dark red with a very dark core. The bouquet is intense, dense and spicy--notes of
nutmeg, lavender, rosemary and musk with
evocative wafts of black and red liquorice arising. Some floral aromas are present, although assorted fruits dominate with glazed cherries, prune (fruitcake mixture) to the fore. Close inspection reveals aged pipe tobacco and roasted lamb juice and quince complexities. The palate is, in a word, exceptional! Everything demanded of a top-notch St. Henri palate is delivered. The ripe, rounded and finely
textured tannins, courted by vibrant (zingy)
acidity, certainly induce a youthful disposition.
Medium-dark cherry fruits are complexed by cold
roasted lamb and black pudding flavours - layered
