Tasting Notes:

Alluring aromas of blueberry, dried orange peel and crème de menthe introduce this bold and seductive 2008 Signature Shiraz. The warm,low-yielding vintage encouraged ripe and rich dark fruit flavors, reminiscent of boysenberry pie, balanced by earthy notes of bittersweet cocoa, coffee and tobacco. A fine tannin structure and exceptionally long finish reveals lovely notes of sweet clove, vanilla,cedar and spice.
