This wine has lots of upfront fruit while having a soft round structure and a slight hint of oak. The aromas and flavors show fresh berries, plums and vanilla. The palate is rich and plush with good structure. The soft velvety tannins provide balance and length. This wine can be enjoyed now, but will also improve with short term cellaring.
Blend: 78% Shiraz, 11.4% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3.5% Merlot, 3.1% Malbec, 2% Grenache, 1% Sangiovese, 0.5% Cabernet Franc, and 0.5% Tempranillo.
"Medium purple-crimson; the wine is certainly mouthfilling, but has excellent balance and an attractive range of flavors anchored on plum and blackberry, extending through some spice and earth notes, the tannins supple and ripe.
