Wine Review: This opaque and midnight purple colored Shiraz from John Duval opens blackberry and oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is an oak influenced blackberry with notes of black raspberry. I also detected a hint of black plum and dark chocolate. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins linger nicely. This Shiraz is food friendly and would pair well with a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Lifted notes of violets, dark berries and plum, enhanced by cocoa powder and savory, spicy French oak. The palate is rich yet tightly packed with an array of concentrated dark fruits. The layered fruit is supported by enlivening acidity and fine, very long tannins which will enable ample cellaring potential.

Organic status: not organic
