Deep Black Purple. Intense aromas of blackcurrent, Stewed plums, Cherry, and chocolate. Full bodied berry palate with a sweet long lasting finish.
Blend: 75% Shiraz, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Merlot
"Blended of 75% Shiraz, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Merlot, the 2011 The BallBuster is deep garnet-purple in color with fragrant black currant, crushed black berry and violet aromas plus hints of black pepper, mulberries and spice box. Full-bodied with a good amount of toast and vanilla flavors coming through to compliment the black fruits on the palate, it has a medium level of rounded tannins and lively acid, finishing long."
The Wine Advocate
"Deep ruby. Dark berry compote, licorice and woodsmoke on the assertively perfumed nose. Smooth and appealingly sweet, offering vibrant black raspberry and cola flavors and a hint of bitter chocolate. Velvety tannins come on late and add subtle grip to a smooth, fruit-driven and persistent finish. Production for this popular wine was off by a full third this vintage."
