Tasting Notes:

 

Dramatically reduced yields in 2010 produced a richly concentrated and exotically-spiced Signature Shiraz, exquisite in its rare and expressive character. Cardamom, incense, molasses and bittersweet dark chocolate notes complement ripe, spicy blackberry and boysenberry fruits. Aromas of dried orange peel are present, and the persistent finish reveals a savory complexity evocative of soy or cured meats. Firmly structured with fine, silky tannins, this is a wine to treasure, destined to evolve further over time.
