Vibrant deep crimson; a highly perfumed and seductive array of red and black fruits, licorice, lavender and violets; the palate is medium-bodied, super fresh and juicy, with the backbone and stuffing to ensure maximum pleasure in the short to medium term; with so much personality as a young wine, why wait? Shiraz/Grenache/Viognier/Mourvedre. (7/2012)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Deep ruby. Ripe dark berry aromas are complicated by peppery spices, espresso and dark chocolate. Round and creamy in the mouth, with sweet, densely packed cassis and blackberry flavors that coat the palate. A round and generous wine, with supple texture and gentle tannins coming on late on the finish. (8/2013)
A blend of 76% Shiraz and 6% Viognier were co-fermented, and 13% Grenache and 5% Mourvedre were fermented separately and blended later. The wine was aged in seasoned French oak hogsheads for 10 months before bottling. From the winery: "Vibrant red with violet hues. Intense aromas of blackberry, plum and anise are lifted by floral notes, stone-fruits, pepper and crushed spices. The palate is juicy and rich of ripe plum flavours, with savoury notes and a hint of licorice; fine-grained tannins provide texture and length for a beautifully svelte finish."
