Winemaker's Notes:

Dark red in color with an aroma of mixed forest floor flavors, balanced with dried plums and an earthy, savory complexity. This medium to full bodied Shiraz wine has a balance of red fruits and earthy, cedar textures and finishes with fine, earthy tannins.

Great now, but will reward a further 3 - 5 years in the cellar. Try with Veal Scallopini.
