Lifted redcurrant, warm exotic fruits and dark chocolate combine with subtle eucalypt flavors. The wine has a generous yet stylish palate, showing dark plums, cassis, chocolate and long fine tannins giving a wine structured for
ageing. The wine will reward with medium to long term cellaring.
"Smooth, round and especially graceful, with the ripe blackberry, tar and licorice flavors settling gently into a supple frame. The finish lets it all linger like the glow of a red sunset. Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Drink now through 2016."
"Blended of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon and 46% Shiraz, the 2004 The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz gives a deep garnet-purple color and pronounced notes of kirsch, creme de cassis, dried plums, Mediterranean herbs and a whiff of capsicum. Full-bodied and with ample flesh, it’s well structured with firm fine tannins and crisp acid, going long and earthy in the finish. Drinking now, it should cellar to 2017+."
The Wine Advocate
"Inky violet. Powerful cherry vanilla, candied plum and blackberry jam aromas verge on liqueur-like. The sweet dark fruit flavors offer serious depth and slow-mounting grip, with firm tannins providing necessary support. This turns spicier on the finish, with the rich berry and plum flavors repeating. A real mouthful, and sure to please fans of rich, full-throttle reds."
