Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Aussie blend opens with a fragrant black raspberry bouquet with a hint of boysenberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a tasty black raspberry with nicely integrated minerality. I also detected hints of blackberry, a little old oak and touch of red plum. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This wine would pair well with barbecue baby back ribs. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intoxicating and ethereal. Allow this wine to develop slowly in your glass and watch as the earthen and woody spiced nose unfurls to reveal sweet plummy fruits, supported with highlights of cardamom, nutmeg and cinnamon. A recognizable undercurrent of game and cured meats, ties the link between this vintage and previous ones. The palate, whilst rich and juicy with its abundance of plums and mulberries, displays an ample volume of textured, velvety tannins which tame the mid palate creaminess ensuring a long, savory finish.
