(2009 Vintage) The wine shows all the rich voluptuousness and alluring spice of great Australian shiraz and adds a welcome element of structure and spine, thanks to some premium cabernet sauvignon fruit. Although remaining true to its origins of style, there has been a steady progression of refinement. Increased fragrancy and richness of fruit, buoyancy and weight gives this wine immediate current appeal and outstanding cellar-ability over the medium term.
Regular standard good under $10 wine. August find at Costco in VA for under $8.
