Ruby-red. Smoky aromas of fresh blackberry, cassis and candied cherry lifted by sweet licorice and bright minerality. The flavors offer a compelling combination of power and focus; raspberry and blackberry notes build and sweeten through the finish but there’s also juicy quality providing focus and vivacity. Finishes supple and sweet, with lingering flavors of dark fruit liqueur. A rather graceful style of shiraz, with impressive concentration.

Dried herbs, especially mint, start off this ruby colored wine. This wine shows a lot of restraint for being as big as it is. Layers of raspberry and black plum with a little mineral make this a more “lacy” style. Have this with lamb.
