Wine Review: This pitch black colored Shiraz from John Duval impressive! It opens with an attractive blackberry jam and boysenberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, very well-balanced and super smooth. Like the nose, the flavor profile is a delicious blackberry jam and boysenberry blend with notes of fine grained minerality. I also detected hints of stewed plum, cola and oak mixed in as well. The finish is dry and its moderate well-managed tannins show nice length. While this Shiraz would pair well with a charcutier platter and sharp cheeses. It would also be fine on its own by the campfire this summer. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The nose shows lifted aromas of violets, dark berries and plum, enhanced by cedary-spicy French oak notes. The palate is full bodied and tightly packed with an array of concentrated dark fruits. Succulent, balanced and long on the palate with ample cellaring potential.

Organic status: not organic
