...scented of blueberry preserves, mulberries, and stewed plums with hints of Christmas cake, smoked bacon, tar, potpourri and sandalwood...voluptuously fruited, full-bodied wine offering an abundance of evolving blackberry and savory flavors supported by firm, rounded tannins and enlivening acid. It finishes with excellent persistence.
...aromas of black raspberry, blueberry, cola, licorice and vanilla, with a spicy topnote. Stains the palate with sappy dark fruit and floral pastille flavors and shows serious thrust and incisiveness on the back half. Supple tannins come on late and add firmness to the black and blue fruit qualities that cling to the finish.
Bright raspberry and cherry fruit is underscored by notes of smoke and mocha in this full-bodied Shiraz...tannins are soft and turn dusty on the finish...
Sleek, with a polished texture and lilting blackberry and licorice flavors. Lingers gracefully as the intensity builds.
