Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) Black cherries, licorice, smoke, sweet herbs and tar all meld together in the 2008 Shardana, a blend of 90% old-vine Carignano and 10% Syrah. A deep, fleshy wine, the 2008 impresses for its balance and sheer character. The style is dark, brooding and intense, largely because of the Syrah, but it all works, and beautifully. Gorgeous perfumed notes linger on the finish.

    Full fruit forward blend. Notes of cassis ...as a inky flavor mid-palate.
