"Smooth and succulent, tempering its rich cherry compote flavors with hints of tobacco and pepper. Finishes with a long echo of licorice. Drink now through 2020. 2,000 cases made. –HS" - 90 Points - Wine Spectator "Opaque ruby. Ripe blueberry, licorice candy and hickory smoke on the deeply scented nose. Lush, expansive and seamless, offering intense black and blue fruit flavors that expand and gain spiciness with air. This rather suave shiraz finishes with very good cling and smooth, harmonious tannins that frame the wine's extroverted fruit." - 90 Points - IWC [+]
