Bottle well-aired more than 1 day. Balanced and pleasurable wine. Alluring nose of candied spice and dark fruit with hint of flowers. Ripe sour intense berry fruit (boysenberry, dark plum, and blackberry) that was chewy and savory with meaty notes (beef). Hints of earth and herb. Medium length pleasant finish. Hard to stop drinking this wine.

Lithe, supple and nicely focused, with a lovely spicy edge to the rich cherry, blackberry and engaging hints of mint and prune as the finish lingers effortlessly. A big wine that's enticing now, but needs cellaring. Best after 2007. 500 cases importe... Wine Spectator.

Winemaker's Notes:

COLOUR Almost black at the core with a purple rim. AROMA A little shy to begin but once opened up shows asian spice and scented dark black fruits. PALATE A powerful full bodied palate with fine grained mouth coating tannins; concentrated upfront fruit that continues right across the palate. Although a big wine it shows focus; the fruit concentration carries the alcohol to offer a finely balanced wine of power and intensity. WINEMAKING Crushed into open top fermenters, Regular pump overs twice daily to extract colour and tannin. The grapes were then pressed and the wine was transferred to tank and then racked to barrel for oak maturation. MATURATION 16 months in 20% new French oak hogsheads, the balance in a mix of old French and American oak. ANALYSIS Alc 16.0%, pH 3.38, Acidity 7.04 CELLAR POTENTIAL 8 to 10 years VINTAGE After a long wet winter that carried well into August, the weather cleared up and provided near ideal conditions for flowering and set, to the extent that crop thinning was required. Padthaway was not subjected to the extreme temperatures seen in the northern vineyard areas of the state. The fine weather coupled with balanced vines and careful canopy management resulted in berries full of dark dense fruit and spice characters.
