An outstanding effort, have 6 bottles of this. Very fruity and peppery, just like I like it. I was turned on to this by Robert Parker's Wines of the Week. Highly recommended for Australian shiraz lovers.

A great example of Barossan shiraz. Rich and ripe blackberry fruit partner with well integrated charry oak in the background. A luscious mouthfeel with some earthy tobacco and licorice nuances. Finishes long. Has developed beautifully and is drinking well for a six year old wine.

Another winner from Down Under! Deliciously demonstrates exactly why Australians are the masters of this varietal. Perfectly balanced fruit, oak and spice mdash; ripe and juicy, yet tempered by peppery mocha notes. Smooth and rich; truly a delight!
