Opaque purple. The nose offers a hypnotic array of dark fruit compote and floral scents, with complicating notes of incense, Asian spices and black pepper. Broad and sweet in the mouth, with palate-saturating boysenberry and mulberry flavors, seamless texture and uncanny depth. There's an unlikely energy to this weighty, intensely flavored shiraz that gives it impressive precision. The spice and floral notes linger on the velvety, compellingly sweet finish. Pretty remarkable stuff, but this is still a baby.
