Wine Review: This pitch black colored Shiraz from the Eden Valley is very very good. It opens with a fragrant blackberry and black olive bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, rich and concentrated. The flavor profile is a blueberry and clove blend with notes of raisin, and some hints of plum. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This Shiraz would pair well with barbecue steak tips. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2015 Loechel shows generous dark ripe fruits of blackberry, cherry liqueur and cassis which is supported by dark chocolate and mocha tones and subtle herbs and spice. The palate reveals pronounced dark fruits, underscored by smoky, savory and meaty notes: olives and charcuterie with subtle reductive funk. The palate is medium to full-bodied, yet maintains a mouth-staining inkiness to provide a long and satisfying finish with a persistent orange-rind like acid backbone.
