Ripe mulberry, black cherries and white pepper on the nose with layers of ripe berry fruit and spiciness on the palate. This is a big structured wine with juicy mid-palate and ripe, but firm tannins on the finish.
This wine can be enjoyed with rich casseroles or hearty stews.
"Dark, bright red. Aromatic nose combines blackberry, white pepper and mocha, along with a chocolatey richness. Silky and sweet on the palate, but with good energy to the slightly medicinal mulberry and chocolate flavors. Not a gamey style of shiraz. Suave tannins and harmonious acids give this a solid structure."
International Wine Cellar
"Raised for 15 months in 70% French and the rest in American oak, the 2007 Game Reserve Shiraz has a ripe plum and mulberry scented bouquet with a slight reductive scent in the background. The palate is medium-bodied, the American oak noticeable on the entry lending it a chocolaty tincture, but it is well balanced on the finish."
