NEW VINTAGE AND ONCE AGAIN OUTSTANDING!

"Perfumed, with black tea and dried floral notes that add aromatic intensity to the core of ripe plum, berry and candied cherry. The tannins offer some appealing traction to the density of flavors, finishing with plenty of toasted spice accents. Drink now through 2027. 46,317 cases made.–MW " (WS)

Winery Notes:
This alluring and unashamedly bold Shiraz has hints of spiced plums, blackberry jam and cherry all at the fore and finishes with coffee cream, licorice and vanilla. Full bodied with vibrant berry fruit characteristics, yet elegant with restrained tannins, resulting in a soft mouthfeel. This 2016 Boxer is sure to be a knockout!
