This Shiraz displays how interesting this varietal can be when it is grown in regions with plenty of warmth and sunshine. Immediately present are a mix of aromas of huckleberry, wild berry and dried prunes that are vivid and impacting. There are also fresh, pure notes of rich blackberry, complimented by notes of toast, smoke, white pepper, vanilla bean and a touch of bacon fat. The fruit core always remains strongly in the forefront of this wine, with other aromas in the background. The rich, chewy-berry and smoked berry fruit flavors carry effortlessly through to the ending with a mix of sweet, dark fruit swirling together in a plump, juicy, fresh finish.
