Sweet red berry and gym socks on the nose. Loads of funk. Dried mulberry with spice box, eucalyptus and anise. Generous fruit on the palate with low, soft tannin. Crisp acid. Dry finish. Ends on a red berry note. 86 pts. 12/15/12

Lithe and imposing, this is a tall wine, with refined texture and layered flavors of black cherry, blackberry, smoke and coffee, which linger effectively on the polished finish. Drink now through 2019. 700 cases imported. -HS Opaque ruby. Heady aromas of candied black and blue fruits, cola and vanilla, with cracked pepper and allspice adding complexity. Deeply pitched blueberry and cherry-vanilla flavors are knit seamlessly and pick up a candied violet accent with air. Closes with powerful thrust and very good, sweet persistence. Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 Shiraz gives notes of ripe blackberries, dried mulberries, chocolate and spice box with suggestions of eucalypt, anise and vanilla. Full bodied and generously fruited in the mouth, it gives a low to medium level of soft tannins, crisp acid and a long finish. Drinking nicely now, it should keep to 2019. ** SOLD OUT **
