Winemaker's Notes

The wine color is deep purple to dark crimson. It has a spicy Shiraz nose, characterized by white pepper and sweet Nevers oak. A full, rich Shiraz, the palate shows succulent, ripe fleshy berry fruit, generous oak and a soft tannin finish. Delicious drinking now and should age well for several years if desired.

"Toasty vanillin scents emerge from the deep ruby/purple-tinged 2005 Shiraz. Attractive ripeness, medium body, and good purity as well as length are found in this straightforward Shiraz."
-The Wine Advocate

Deep purple color. Plastic & flowers on the nose. A little hot. Spicy, dark fruits, nice complexity, brilliant finish. Good with spicy foods, chicken and meat. (Careful of the sediment in the bottom.)
