The 2006 Shardana wraps around the palate with imposing layers of black olives, spices, grilled herbs and licorice. The 2006 is a muscular Shardana in which the 15% Syrah seems to speak loudly.

WE 92pts. - Winemaker Notes - SHARDANA is the name for the native Sardinians and the mysterious red symbol on the label shown above is a Phoenician S. Three thousand years later, Neil and Maria Empson chose this ancient word for their own tribute to beautiful Sardinia: a full-bodied, voluptuous red from 85% indigenous (partly pre-Phylloxera!) Carignano grapes and 15% Shiraz. The style was inspired by Sulcis exceptional terroir and reflects the region s power-packed, layered complexity; the depth of its seas, the spicy fragrance of its ever-present winds.

This gorgeous Carignano-based wine from the sun-drenched island of Sardinia shows amazing harmony and personality. There are rich and ripe notes here of blackberry, mature cherry, tobacco, leather and a touch of exotic spice.

Red and brickish in color. Ripe red fruit with stony mineral notes emerge on the nose. Black fruit liqueur dominates the attack on the palate while an intensely muscular and gripping mineral structure anchors the wine backed by focused tannins that point to long ageability. It needs time but so well-balanced in its brawniness that it s worth opening now to serve with robust meat. Devon Magee.


Winemaker's Notes:

Dark ruby. Perfumed aromas of red and dark berries, with a strong salty overtone. The creamy, seamless raspberry and red cherry flavors are complicated by tobacco and candied flowers. Turns more tannic with air, finishing with a gentle licorice quality and a touch of alcoholic warmth. Still, it's a very successful wine.Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar90 points
