Winemaker's Notes

Extremely impressive for the price and utterly delicious right now. Glass-staining ruby. Highly complex bouquet displays cherry, candied licorice, wintermint, camphor and smoked meat. Weighty and deep, with sweet but energetic dark berry and cherry flavors, good mineral lift and a late note of bitter cherry skin. Aged in French oak, driven by fruit, smooth textured and glycerin laden mouthfeel.

Critical Acclaim

"A perennial Best Buy, Winner’s Tank’s 2008 Shiraz is a glass-coating opaque purple. It exhibits an excellent nose of violets, incense, blueberry, and blackberry. Layered on the palate with succulent flavors, this smooth-textured, lengthy effort will offer pleasure over the next 4-5 years."
