WS 91 WA 90 Pts - Winemakers Notes - Rich red berries and dark bitter chocolate, dark cherries enhanced with cassis, anise and pepper mingle on the medium to full bodied palate. Creamy tannins and complex acidity.Add winemaker's notes
The vines in the vineyard were pruned and trellised in November (Spring), and their long shoots needed to be trained along the trellis. This was a vigorous growing time for the vines, and leading up to this vintage, we saw some of them already producing the small bunches of inflorescences (flowers) that will eventually become fruit.

The 2008 Hales Shiraz contains dollops of Grenache, Mataro, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Purple-colored, it offers up a bouquet of cedar, spice box, violets, plum, and blueberry. Layered, savory, and full-flavored, what it lacks in complexity, it makes up for in unadulterated pure fruit. Drink it over the next 6-8 years.
