Winemaker's Notes

Deep purple-black colored, it has notes of blackberries, black cherries and red roses with hints of chocolate and baking spices plus some loam. Medium-full bodied with a medium level of grainy tannins, it offers plenty of expressive fruit in the mouth marked by lively acid and finishing long.

97% Shiraz - 3% Riesling

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh and vibrant, this is tight with tannins around a juicy core of blackberry and sage flavors, lingering effectively on the expressive finish. Best from 2015 through 2019."
91 Points

"Inky purple. Sexy, oak-spiced aromas of blueberry, cherry-cola and floral oils. Lush and broad on the palate, offering hefty black and blue fruit preserve flavors that are lifted by gentle acidity. Notes of vanilla and mocha linger on the impressively long, spicy finish."
91 Points
