($175; 85% shiraz, 10% mourvedre and 5% grenache) Opaque violet. Powerfully scented nose offers an exotic array of dark berries and spices, with smoky minerals and fresh flowers adding complexity. Deep, palate-staining blackberry and mulberry flavors are sharply focused and surprisingly lithe, picking up a hint of sweet tobacco with air. A strikingly complex and seductive wine that will no doubt age but offers immense appeal now. This kept changing in the glass as I followed it over two days. (Multiple importers; www.maltus.com
