Tasting Notes

92 POINTS from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Shiraz (82%) – Grenache (18%) spent 26 months in French oak, 30% new. A glass-coating opaque purple, it offers a brooding nose of wood smoke, Asian spices, pepper, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Lush on the palate, it has mouth-filling fruit, tons of spicy blue and black fruit flavors, enough structure to evolve for several years, and a long, fruit-filled finish." Drink it through 2020. (10/07) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's IWC: "Opaque ruby. Powerful blueberry and boysenberry aromas are complicated by smoky bacon fat, graphite and dried violet; really showing its shiraz today. Rich, round and fleshy, with deep dark berry flavors, supple tannins and slow-mounting minerality. Finishes with good tangy grip and persistence, echoing the floral and graphite notes."
