Dark purple color with a nose of dark berries, plum, pepper and spices. The palate is lush and full with black fruit tones that finishes with some slight tannins. What I would expect from a McLaren Vale Shiraz. Very nice.

Bright, fruit forward table wine, blackberry and strawberry aroma enhanced with chocolate and vanilla- let breathe for a half hour and then enjoy the relatively long finish. Good price point.

The wine is a distinctly Australian, with great body and presence from the nose. The hints of the vanilla courtesy of the American Oak send promises of a nice glass. The first sip brought a lovely headiness of the mixture of the currants and dark berries. The finish was lovely with the promised vanilla and a hint of toasted coconut. The tannins are round and lovely in this 6 year old. If you're in Seattle this wine is available for $9.99 at Esquin. It's a steal at that price.

Less rich and opulent than the winery's 2005 release, the 2004 Show Reserve is a medium-bodied Shiraz that marries tart mixed-berry flavors with toast and vanilla shadings. The tannins are supple, the acids crisp, leaving a lingering, mouthwatering finish. Drink now-2012. - J.C. ** SOLD OUT **

Bright and spicy, with flashes of white pepper and carnation around a supple core of currant and blackberry. The fruit is most prominent on the long, expressive finish. The tannins are well-integrated. Drink now through 2016. 1,600 cases made. -HS ** Only 4 in Stock **
