The Colonial Estate Envoy 2006

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Supple and seductive, this brims with lovely pomegranate-tinged red cherry and spice flavors, hinting at clove and tobacco as the finish lingers. A graceful red, with pizzazz, that feels airborne on the finish. Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvandegrave;dre. Drink now through 2015.

World’s End is the culmination of over 15 years of winemaking in Saint Emilion, Bordeaux and the Barossa Valley, Australia by Jonathan Maltus and his team. To access that information please check out www.maltus.com. The 2008 vintage marks the beginning of what we hope will become a love affair between our French-inspired winemaking and viticultural approach and the beautiful landscape and terroir of the Napa Valley. Close cropping, double-sorting, lees in suspension, will be part of the norm. Read less

The 2005 Envoy GSM is composed of 60% Grenache, 30% Shiraz, and 10% Mourvedre. It presents an enticing perfume of damp earth, forest floor, spice box, kirsch, and blueberry. This leads to a velvety-textured, intensely flavored wine with outstanding depth and length. It can be enjoyed over the next 8andndash;10 years.

Dark purple. Fresh dark berry aromas deepen with air, developing a ripe, smoky bouquet. Dense and ripe on the palate, showing brooding bitter cherry and blackcurrant flavors and chunky tannins. Gains an exotic floral pastille quality on the long, spicy finish. This needs a serious steak.

A GSM meaning a blend of "Grenache, Syrah and MourvŠdre". Dark in color and fruit character yet still nuanced with juicy, ripe raspberries on the finish. What's so amazing is the concentration of fruit and the approachable yet present tannins.
