Winemaker's Notes

Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2007!

An intensely concentrated wine, this Shiraz initially reveals aromas of ripe cherries, blackberries, chocolate and mocha. Delving deeper into this complex wine, cracked pepper and spice fragrance are apparent with sweet French oak aromas always present. The vanilla softness on the nose leads into a full palate crammed with ripe fruits reminiscent of a basket of sweet summer berries. Seamless and well structured tannins complete this full bodied red wine.

Cellaring potential: Drink now or with correct cellaring will mature for up to four years.

Suggested food: A perfect accompaniment to this wine would be rich rare char-grilled beef and asparagus or a rich confit de canard to bring out its juicy palate.

"Bright, lively, harmonious and generous. A sleek mouthful of blueberry, currant and plum flavors, neatly packaged with hints of cream and spice as the finish sails on. Drink now through 2015."

My husband and I just opened a bottle tonight and had a glass. Probably one of the better shiraz's we've had. Beautiful color.
