Ratings Pedigree:

Critical Acclaim

"This blend of 65% Shiraz and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon from 10-year old vines cropped remarkably high for the resulting quality (4 - 4.5 tons of fruit per acre) represents a 700-case pleasure bomb. Although it is stunning, I am a little concerned about how well it will age given its forward style and cleverly crafted personality. Fashioned by brilliant winemakers Sarah and Sparky Marquis, and aged in both French and American oak (primarily new), it displays tremendous full-bodied, intense cassis flavors, low acidity, ripe tannin, and that tell-tale Sarah/Sparky Marquis seamlessness, opulence, and voluptuousness. The inky/ruby/purple color is followed by a pure, alluring, enormously satisfying Australian red that may reveal even more complexity over the next 6-8 years."
