Very deep red with vibrant ruby rim. Powerful aromatics of blackberry, licorice and all spice. The subtle lifted vanilla from barrel fermentation adds complexity. Typical of our best parcels of McLaren Vale Shiraz, showing strong vibrant black fruit with richness that is achieved only in a region such as this. The depth and intensity of the palate is well balanced by a firm tannin structure. The finish shows great length and has supporting acid sufficient to allow for mid term cellaring.

Wine Companion
Rich and concentrated; abundant blackberry fruit, a touch of vanilla oak, balanced tannins.
, James Halliday Issue: Oct 2003



88/100
Wine Spectator
A bit aggressive with its peppery tannins, but the flavors of cedary, earthy berry and licorice bubble up from underneath and persist impressively.
