The nose is plum and black pepper with earthy undertones. On first taste, the acidity and tannins come through but subside quickly to a tart plum flavor accented with dark cherries. The finish is smooth and velvety with spiced coffee and the hint of sweetness as the dryness and body the wine let the flavors work in the mouth for some time. An excellent wine and a beautiful example of a Shiraz. Could age well, but who has time to let good wine sit when it could be enjoyed now.
A great light wine, with great body. Good beach breeze wine.
