Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2006!
A blend inspired by the opera term for an improvised personal expression at the end of an Aria, this blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre blends together the array of flavors and terroirs of the estate, as well as being driven to create a common name for Grenache blends that are unique to the McLaren Vale appellation. Flavors of Blackberry, bing cherry, mulberry, plums, nuts and subdued oak flavors slowly tapering off to a lingering finish.

"A vivid red, rich and velvety, brimming with plum, blackberry and cherry flavors wrapped in a veil of very fine tannins, weaving a dark chocolate note through the long, generous finish. Best from 2008 through 2015."
