Deep red to the core with a soft ruby red hue. This wine possesses an intense bouquet of aromas ranging from cola, aniseed, roasted meats, stewed plums, scorched earth and dark chocolate. Dark purple to black fruit flavors surround a wealth of succulent and approachable tannins, with a finish that is soft and long.
"The 2006 Shiraz Samantha's Garden is sourced from Clare Valley. It is a glass-coating opaque purple with aromas of pain grille, mineral, lavender, and blueberry. On the palate it is supple, layered, and concentrated with excellent integration of oak, tannin, and acidity. This lengthy wine has the stuffing to develop for several more years and should be at its best from 2013 to 2026."
