Schild Estate Shiraz 2007
The color of this wine is a vibrant rich red It has a nose of ripe cherries, rich spices and licorice with some vanillin undertones, derived from the extended maturation in new and old American oak. On the palate the flavors explode in a fusion of complex oak and well integrated tannins with a backbone of ripe black plums.
