Tasting notes

With a cooler vintage enabling multiple layers of flavor to develop, the 2018 Shiraz is powerful, complex and compelling.

A bevy of dense black fruits and savory spices unfold and persist on the palate— plum, licorice, and black cherry maintain exceptional freshness and focus, while beautiful floral fragrances of lavender and rose hips reveal the wine’s nuanced varietal character. Bergamot, cola, smoked bacon, and Asian incense add dimension and depth across the long, rewarding finish.
