Nice round, plump style of Shiraz. Loads of plum and black berry on the nose, with the small Viognier component adding exotic notes of spiced apricots. There's lots of ripe plum flavours, alongside graphite and dried herbs. It's a luscious, soft wine, finishing with restrained tannin and moderate acidity. 14.5% ABV.
The currant-like fruit is beginning to raisin and the secondary notes of dried mint, Kalamata olive, liquorice and dried violets are floating to the fore. Fruit on the palate is fading but this producer's signature tannins are still on full display, as is the oak. This is lacking some harmony as it ages, but it's nevertheless a likable drop. Drink now. 88 Points Wine Enthusiast.
