Brick red in colour, a lovely wine with great depth of flavour. The nose shows fig and florals, red and black liquorice, cocoa and pepper. Savour the spice and plum pudding aromas, the luscious blackberry characters, and spicey oak notes. On the palate, lots of black cherry and chocolate unfold with a nice cedary core from oak ageing. The tantalizing oak characters are just discernable, providing a cedar/ charcoal-carbon backdrop against smallberried fruits. The long finish shows vanilla, blueberry and black pepper amid a minty black cherry profile. Lots of drinking pleasure for a under $10 Shiraz!
