With aromas of plums, rhubarb and ripe blackcurrant on the nose along with chocolate, cinnamon spice, hints of anise and earthy notes this is a complex and intriguing wine.
Dark berry fruit is the dominant character on the front palate, and it is dense and brooding through the mid palate. With time in the glass the wine develops more complexity with mocha notes, toasted sweet spices along with hints of white pepper. It is a full, round and powerful wine and finishes with fine silky tannins.
"The 2007 Henry’s Drive Shiraz was aged for 16 months in 35% new French and American oak. It sports an exemplary bouquet of bacon, game, incense, lavender, and blueberry leading to a forward, sweetly fruited, pleasure-bent wine that will drink nicely over the next 6-8 years."
