"Old and New World elements are evident in this Shiraz. The round, easy mouthfeel and nose of berry, chocolate and cumin say "New World." The palate has more Old World notes of leather, game and dry licorice surrounding the fruit core. Dark oak, licorice and tart berry flavors play out on the complex finish."
This Shiraz from our hillside estate illustrates terrific depth of color with attractive reds and purples. Aromas illustrate good blackberry and pepper along with a subtle dose of toasted oak. Flavors follow with lovely ripe blackberry fruit coupled with barrel maturation qualities and a nuance of anise at the finish. This wine exhibits wonderful flavors and a structure and complexity that will allow it to live for years to come.
