Tasting notes

2016 Signature Shiraz is impressively textured and dense, showing rich layers of spice with a broad and generous palate of ripe, black fruits.

Incense, orange zest, and dried violet aromas introduce decadent layers of black cherry, plum and berry compote accentuated by pink peppercorn, dusty baker’s chocolate and pie spice. Anchored by earthy notes of sandalwood and saddle leather, its sweet, ripe tannins support a long and deeply satisfying finish.
