    R Wines. Rated 90-92 pts avg. winemaker's notes: The appearance is opaque red-black with a purple rim. The aroma is of rich brown sugar, prunes, black fruits, earth and mineral. The palate is dense, silky, rich and super-ripe. Bitumen, molasses and vanilla. Long, soft structured tannins. critical acclaim: "The 2008 Shiraz offers up aromas of cigar box, damp earth, smoked meat, bacon, and blueberry. Packed with flavor on the palate, it is full-bodied, round, and altogether pleasure-bent. Drink it over the next 4-5 years."
