________________________________________________

“A lovely, elegant style that’s fragrant with florals, licorice and woodsy spices. It’s well composed, medium-bodied with a core of juicy fruit tempered by finely grained tannins. And while there’s a vibrancy, it also lingers long on the finish.”

“It’s firm, it’s bold, it’s well-mannered. Red cherry into plum. clove into woodsy spice, a toasty/cedary character throughout. This is a shiraz in good form; it ticks a lot of boxes. The price is more than fair.”
