Winemaker's Notes:

The signature varietal of Australia, sourced from South Eastern Australia's premier wine-growing regions! Grapes from the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale contribute rich, mature fruit flavors, while cooler climate grapes from the Adelaide Plains and the Adelaide Hills introduce the spicy character, resulting in the perfect blend.

This deep ruby colored wine offers pleasing aromas of rich blackberry fruit, varietal spice, and hints of vanilla. Flavors extend onto the palate with lush plum and dark cherry essence, along with complex layers of vanilla oak and black pepper. Abundant tannins are soft and silky, for a full-bodied impression on the palate that concludes with a long lingering finish.
