This is a very impressive wine - especially at the price. There are signs of commerciality in the cocoa finish, but...

Purple ruby. Pleasant berry aromas. Peppery out of the gate (the shiraz leads this dance) and then the cab's mild tannins appear. Overall nice and smooth with a mid length finish. Some heat on the end reflects the higher alcohol content. A nice solo act but it also excelled sharing the bill with italian sausage brochette brushed with an olive oil/balsamic sauce. Grip it n' sip it! April 2013.
