Wine Review: This opaque and dark ruby colored wine opens with a musty oak bouquet with a hint of black raspberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a tart black raspberry with plenty of integrated smoky oak. There were also some hints of blackberry and plum. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are manageable. I would decant this wine and pair it with beef bourguignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The true key to the wine is the Grenache. In the years Shiraz is strong and bold, the Grenache is somewhat subdued but in others, the Grenache leaps out with spice cherries and strong tannins.
