Tasting notes

Rated 94 | “Rich and extracted…exhibits the structured solidity of a very serious and ageworthy wine.” - Connoisseurs Guide to California Wines, July 2016

This full-bodied Signature Shiraz is equally expressive in aroma and on the palate, exhibiting red and black fruits, exotic spices and smoke. Opened by aromas of blueberry, tart blackberries, pepper jam and fig; the rich and textured palate confirms pomegranate, anise, dusty bittersweet chocolate and ground espresso. Retaining the inherent spicy Shiraz character, the finish reveals white pepper and clove. Exhibiting flavor complexity and finely integrated tannin, this wine is suited for aging 10+ years.
