Soft and expressive, layering plum, currant and clove hints into a beautifully textured package, all pointing toward the long, generous finish. Drink now through 2018. 4,500 cases made.-HS
Vinous 91 points (Jul 2013)
Dark ruby. Spicy cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by an exotic Indian spice quality. Chewy, round and nicely concentrated, with sweet, focused black and blue fruit compote flavors lifted by tangy acidity. Appealingly sweet on the youthfully tannic finish, which leaves allspice, blueberry and bitter chocolate notes behind. Shows the best traits of this difficult Barossa vintage and might surprise with its ability to age.
