Not your blockbuster warm-climate Aussie Shiraz, this is a more elegant example
reminiscent of violets, pink peppercorns, nutmaeg and caramelized quince and mulberries.
The palate is likewise restrained, offering fruit compote with slightly meaty undertones.
"Effusively peppery, with tremendous black and white pepper aromas that lace through the vigorous blackberry, currant and floral flavors, finishing with impressive vibrancy and length. Best from 2009 through 2016."
"Saturated ruby. Black raspberry and baking spices on the nose. Tangy, sharply focused
red fruit flavors are pinot-like in their vivacity; surprisingly light in body, with impressive mineral
lift and cut. Clean and brisk on the finish, leaving behind a refreshing trail of tangy red fruit. Very
fresh for a wine based on shiraz."
