A drink-now style of warming Shiraz, with plenty of weight and richness, soft tannins and flavors that artfully combine sour plum, cracked pepper, rare beef and chocolate. Drink it over the next few years.
The supple-textured Shiraz displays a slightly herbal aspect to its kirsch-like fruit—something akin to garrigue mixed with olive. Nicely balanced, with lingering notes of cherry and pipe tobacco on the finish. Drink now.
