Wine Review: This opaque dark purple Shiraz from down under was quite appealing. This wine opens with a spicy light raspberry like bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is round, very easy to drink, and has juicy raspberry like flavors with a little bit of light oak mixed in. The finish is dry, a touch tannic, and lingers for a little while. This wine would pair nicely with a gourmet Angus burger with swiss and sautéed mushrooms. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Colour: Very deep crimson with purple hues Nose: Lifted aromas of raspberry and satsuma plum are complimented by fine milk chocolate, vanilla and hints of butter, roasty and smokey nuances Palate: Sweet primary fruits transfer to the palate which is full and well balanced with briary spice and fine but firm American oak tannins. The finish is very long and fruitful yet youthfully austere.
