Deep red-ruby. Opulent, spicy aromas of blackberry, plum and cassis, with dark chocolate, mocha, licorice and lightly toasty, creamy vanillin oak. Sumptuous, powerful and creamy, presenting a perfectly ripened, vibrant palate dripping with impressively concentrated and luscious dark berry, plum and olive flavors, wrapped in new vanillin oak. The wine's firm, tightly knit tannins contribute to its excellent cut. Goes to prove that Australian shiraz can be big, ripe and beautiful without being overdone.
