Winemaker's Notes

Dark scarlet red with a purple rim. Lifted cedar and berry notes on the nose. An expressive, mouthfilling palate with a spectrum of dark blackberry jam and nuances of licorice, tar, spicy anise, cocoa and smoky characters.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Suxx Shiraz spent 12 months in 100% new American oak. Opaque purple-colored, it offers up a complex aromatic array of cigar box, baking spices, black currant, and blueberry compote. Full-bodied on the palate, it is ripe, layered, savory, and beginning to reveal a bit of complexity. Give it 2-3 years of additional cellaring and drink it from 2011 to 2020."
