Winemaker's Notes

Deep crimson in color with purple hues. A very complex yet attractive nose of dark cherries, exotic spice and savory earthy notes with an underlying bitter chocolate/mocha character. The aromatics are deeply concentrated with rich brambly fruits yet contained by fine white pepper, cloves and freshly milled ground spice characters.

This wine shows great varietal definition with a complex array of flavors for Shiraz. The oak offers some dusty/toasty depth but is entirely secondary. The palate delivers sweet dense ripe fruit of cherries and turkish delight but well harnessed by fine tannins and some structural French oak. A long, seamless wine with a good mouthfeel and powdery texture. Full-bodied and powerful, this wine is designed to age over the next 8-10 years.
