Grippy tannins underlie the generous core of blueberry and black cherry fruit, contained by hints of savory white pepper and wet hay, lingering gracefully. Shiraz. Drink now through 2020. 250 cases imported.-HS

(100% shiraz): Vivid purple. High-pitched, smoke-tinged blackberry and cherry pit aromas are complicated by notes of black olive, spicecake and licorice, with a subtle vanilla quality building in the glass. Sappy and lively on the palate, offering intense dark berry liqueur and violet pastille flavors lifted by a mineral component. Shows surprising heft for the vintage and finishes spicy, focused and very long, with dusty tannins adding shape.
 Wine Advocate 92 points (Feb 2014)
The deep garnet-purple colored 2011 The Struie is a Shiraz blend from the Barossa and Eden Valleys. It has an indulgent nose of blackcurrants, black plums and mulberries embellished with an undercurrent of black pepper, loam and Chinese Five Spice plus a whiff of Provencal herbs. Packed with taut, blackberry flavors in the full-bodied mouth, it has a firm level of chewy tannins and crisp acid to support the long and slightly herbal finish. Drink it now to 2022+.
