"The toasted herb notes are distinctive, offering rosemary and bay leaf accents to the dried cherry and blackberry core, with accents of fresh orange zest and plenty of cigar box details. Expressive, especially on the finish. Drink now through 2030. 13,412 cases made. –MW "(WS)

"In a sea of dense, dark-fruited Barossa Shiraz, it can be a refreshing change to find something with a little more elegance and high fruit tones, even if the aromas venture a slightly into soap territory. Ripe strawberry mingles with baking spices, Dr. Pepper and a savory note. The tannins are tongue-gripping but balanced by a nice acidity and a herbal character on the finish. Drink now–2025." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Dark ruby in color, with purple-black hues, this wine offers aromas of red and dark berry fruit alongside subtle notes of dark chocolate and controlled oak spice. The soft, deep red and black fruit notes seen together on the nose also show in abundance on the palate, where they are accompanied by a fresh acid line and a super fine tannin frame. These ensure some real balance to the wine and a drinkability and moorishness so often found in Barossa Shiraz.
