Style: Medium. Excellent depth and resolve: complex & compact all at once.
Colour: Opaque black dark crimson with deep dark crimson red hue.
Nose: The nose displays refined ripe dark plum and dark cherry top notes followed by some liquorice, leather, subtle vanillin cedar and a light meatiness. Pepper and Graphite-like edge
Palate: Medium bodied the palate has dark plummy flavours alongside a lick of liquorice, cedary vanilla and spice. Elegant soft mouthfeel with very fine grained chocolatey and velvet like tannins. Aftertaste of dark plum, subtle liquorice, cedar and spice, and a glimmering slate-like spark on the finish.
James Halliday 2015 Wine Companion – 96 points : excellent colour; precisely crafted Shiraz, this is one cool dude.
