The color is dense, inky dark red with purple hues.
The Bouquet has forward raspberry and black forest fruits which tantalize the senses with subtle chocolate tones on the nose.
The dense, brooding palate is filled with black forest fruits, blending seamlessly with chocolate flavors, finishing with textured, rolling tannins.
Excellent with any red meats – just perfect with a juicy rib-eye steak on the bone!
"Strong crimson-purple; rich and concentrated, but with no dead or confit fruit flavours; excellent texture and structure.
Australian Wine Companion
"Smooth and velvety, showing a spicy mineral edge to its lingering dark berry and licorice flavors. Drink now through 2014."
"2007 Barossa Blackwell Shiraz Bright scents of cherries introduce this peppery shiraz. The tannins are earthy and intense, but the wine has some refinement and the fruit is the primary focus. A few years in bottle will soften the tannins, as would grilled lamb."
