A solid wine with both presence and delicacy. It’s not overpowering, but it has good length and staying power. Firm, clear peach and olive oil flavors complement similar aromas. There’s also a nice spiciness on the palate that fades into the finish. Very tasty. 2,000 cases produced.
An interesting Shiraz, this one’s plummy aromas and flavors have one foot in the prune/raisin camp. Still, there are pretty flavors of Christmas spice, bread flour, tea and tobacco here, too; the latter two leave a somewhat sour taste on the finish. Imported by Old Bridge Cellars.
Black fruit and some road tar comprise the potent, dark nose. Sweet black-cherry flavors follow, with a long sultry finish closing the program. The feel is soft and dense, and the fruit quality is good but not stunning.
