Tasting Notes:
(42% Shiraz, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot; fermented with wild yeasts and aged in one-third new, one-third second-fill and one-third third-fill French oak): Good dark red-ruby. Slightly reduced aromas of blackberry, cassis, clove, tobacco and licorice, with a violet topnote providing lift: distinctly Old World in character (like Bordeaux topped up with Syrah back in the day?). Wonderfully dense and pliant, with harmonious ripe acidity and a savory character giving definition and class to the dark berry and spice flavors. Finishes rich but classically dry, with a full dusting of suave tannins. Score - 91. (Stephen Tanzer, vinous.com, April 2015)
