Winemaker's Notes

This wine is deep purpley red in color, displaying an aroma of sweet fragrant plums and bright red-berried fruits along with a fine cedar tone and just the subtle floral notes of Viognier. A medium to full bodied wine, showing red fruits, fine spices, cloves and peppers. The 2006 is rich, but not an overpowering Shiraz with the subtle sweet textures of Viognier.

Great now, but will also reward 5-7 years in the cellar. Match with butterfly pork chops with creamy mash potatoes.

Critical Acclaim

"A stylish wine, with bramble notes alongside blackberry fruit and ironstone; oak comes forward on the palate, supported by mocha, leather and chocolate."
93 Points

"This is ripe and expressive, with a purity and clarity to the blueberry, plum and white pepper that lets the flavors sail on, lingering beautifully against superfine tannins. Drink now through 2015. 5,500 cases imported."
91 Points

You mention you got a bad bottle. Trust me, if you've ever had wine before, you'll know if the bottle you got is good or not. I actually got the 2005 at a store near me for around sixteen bucks. It is fruity, but I also taste some licorice and dark cherry flavors. Totally worth another try if you got a bad bottle. Someone once told me that 1 in 10 bottles is bad. I haven't had that bad of luck, thankfully.

Highly recommended and I will be buying again. Perfect year round - light but full bodied. Great alone or with cheese and/or meals.
