A big, inky wine with a deep dark cherry robe. Intense blackcurrant, black cherry and toasty oak. Hint of woodsmoke, vanilla and exotic spices. Powerful structure, integrating silky tannins, chocolatey oak and fresh black berry fruit flavours. Well-layered tannins lead to an incredibly long, persistent finish.

A single-vineyard wine that contains about 85% Shiraz, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Grenache, this is an incredibly concentrated wine. Slightly lifted aromas keep it from seeming heavy, but the flavors are dense and fudge-like, chocolaty and superripe. Dusty tannins on the finish suggest cellaring through 2010, and it should age well through at least 2020.
