Winemaker's Notes

Bright red in color with youthful crimson hues. Dark cherries, rich 'old gold' chocolate and garden spices overwhelm the nose, beautifully complemented by fine French oak char. The palate is nicely textured and inviting, the flavors carry over superbly from the nose to the palate, a harmonious and persistent blend of succulent ripe cherries, cocoa and classically presented tannins. A wine to savor now or to cellar further for enhanced enjoyment.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright ruby. Fresh red berries and peppery spices on the nose and in the mouth. Juicy and tight, with good back-end cut and lift. Dusty tannins add finishing shape and grip. Much of the fruit that's normally designated for Kilikanoon's top shiraz bottlings wound up in this wine in this difficult vintage."

This is a good quality Shiraz - especially for the price - but I will disagree with the "Big & Bold" description. This wine is neither big, nor bold. I ordered it because I felt the Merino 2012 was not bold enough - and it turns out to be moreso than this.
