(a blend based on 47% cabernet sauvignon and 35% shiraz): Dark red. Expressive aromas and flavors of crushed dark berries, tree bark, licorice, pepper and spice cake. Offers lovely sweetness but the mid-palate is also given good shape by a firm edge of acidity. I find this both riper and more structured than the last vintage I tasted, the 2007. Finishes with substantial but ripe, broad tannins.
