Winemaker's Notes:

Deep garnet rim with a black center. Lashings of dark chocolate on the nose. Showing the classic richness of Barossa Shiraz with a superb depth of fruit on the middle palate reined in by fine chalky tannins on the finish.

A great partner for beef, full flavored meat and poultry dishes, Indian curries and fine chocolates.

"Round and generous. A lively mouthful of cherry, tobacco and earthy spice flavors, lingering impressively on the focused finish..."
-Wine Spectator
