Wine Review: This dark red colored Shiraz from John Duval is very good! It opens with a pleasant red raspberry bouquet with hints of red cherry. It is medium bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor is a tasty plum with notes of fine minerality and gentle old oak. I also picked up some hints of red currant towards the end. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are nicely prolonged. I would pair this very nice Shiraz with a pork tenderloin. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A dark fruit expression of blackberry and plum gives way to some lifted floral notes and savory, spicy French oak. The palate is full bodied and generous with an excellent concentration of blackberry fruit. Textured layers of fruit, balanced acidity and fine, long tannins will enable good cellaring potential.

Organic status: not organic
