Grape Type: Red Blend
Region: Barossa Valley
94 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2004
($100; a blend of shiraz , grenache, cabernet sauvignon, mourvedre, carignan and muscadelle) Medium ruby. Cassis, raspberry, violet, pepper and eucalyptus on the nose. Dense, spicy and vibrant, with superconcentrated, sharply delineated flavors of blackberry, chocolate, pepper and spices. A far cry from the literally dozens of dead fruit shirazes I tasted in recent weeks from Australia This has superb backbone and lift, and a bright, very long finish.
