"The intense colour preempts a wine of dense, layered black fruit. The aromas of anise and cracked pepper are enveloped in classic blackberry. An echo of mint is brought to the palate by the addition of a small amount of Limestone Coast fruit. The glass coating texture belies a wine of restraint and balance. The fruit weight is a perfect counterpoint to the structure imparted by oak and skin contact." —winemaker
"Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Shiraz explodes with creme de cassis, blueberry pie and mint aromas accented by hints of licorice and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, rich and packed with warm black and blueberry fruit flavors, it has a medium to firm level of fine, rounded tannins and a long, spicy finish with lively lift. Drink it now to 2018+." —Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate

"Supple, ripe and splashy, with brash blackberry, green olive and tomato leaf flavors, coming together into a savory, persistent finish. Drink now through 2019. 1,000 cases imported." —Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator

"Youthful purple. Ripe black raspberry and cola aromas are underscored by a zesty mineral quality and a hint of licorice. Sweet, pure dark berry flavors are sharpened and lifted by a spicy element. Puts on weight on the long, pliant finish, which features smooth tannins and a touch of smokiness." —Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media

I have re-ordered this several times and enjoy it. It works well with tomato sauced pasta, beef and pork. It's refreshing by itself at the end of an afternoon. If it were just a bit drier, I might enjoy it more, but it's not enough to complain about.
