Tasting Notes:

A recent string of cooler-than-average vintages in Napa Valley has yielded Shiraz with tremendous concentration, a refreshingly restrained fruit component, layers of exotic spice and a spirit that collectors of intriguing wines wish for. Juicy blackberry and cola, expressive notes of saddle leather and black tea with aromatic notes of dried orange peel and cinnamon. Firm, age-worthy, and decantable for hours, the finish is long and persistent, with exquisite hints of bittersweet cocoa and licorice.
