Wine Review: This ruby colored Shiraz from Leeuwin is a very good value. It opens with a black cherry bouquet with hints of anise and cigar box. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a red plum and oak blend with notes of red raspberry. We also detected hints of anise mixed in as well. The finish is dry and its fine tannins fade away nicely. We also noted a touch heat present, but it was not distracting. This Syrah is food friendly and the Panel suggested pairing it with coq au vin or lamb stew. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Lifted, bright and briary, the palate expresses dark black cherries, blueberries and mulberries. Chocolate, caramel and anise surround the fruit spectrum with elevated floral notes of rose and subtle violets. Plushly textured, the palate has concentration with boysenberry and redcurrants present. Black cardamom, anise and clove sit in balance providing complexity. It is integrated and finely woven with subtle sweet oak, a delicate acid line and chalky structural tannins.

Organic status: not organic
