Wine Review: This dark ruby and opaque colored Shiraz from Hickinbotham is terrific. It opens with a unique Sprite and boysenberry jam bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, very well-balanced, refined and nicely coats your mouth. The flavor profile is a plum and gentle minerality blend with notes of mild raspberry tea and a touch of blackberry and oak. The finish is dry and its flavors and refined tannins are nicely extended and drift away nicely. This elegant Shiraz would pair perfectly with a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Shiraz shows the characters this vineyard has displayed since the start, but perhaps in a more elegant, harmonious and balanced form. Its consistency is comforting and reassuring, buttressed by blue and black fruit notes throughout. It is readily enjoyable but has all the structure, acid and tannin to offer decades of rewards from cellaring.
