Deep ruby color. Complex earthy notes combine with rich raspberry compote, aniseed and charcuterie on the bouquet. Lingering in the background is a hint of smoky cedar. Dense, rich fruit flavors of raspberry, blackberry and plum coat the palate initially before savory black olive leads into soft, fine-grained and lengthy tannins to finish. A full-flavored Shiraz!

Big, ripe and generous, with vanilla-scented blackberry and blueberry flavors on a thick, velvety frame. Shows muscle, but stays balanced by perfumed notes of violet and lavender, lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2030. 4,490 cases made, 450 cases imported. - MW

From this historic winery's home block of vines, this Shiraz is a rich, winter warmer that's still finding its way. It opens with aromas of plump blueberries, plums, chocolate flakes, dried green spices and black pepper, with flecks of licorice and graphite in the background. There's some heat from the alcohol on the palate and the oak is fairly prominent. Spicy, drying tannins back more plush plummy fruit. This should cellar well, but it's a little chunky at the moment. Drink 2020-2029.
