Mainly Shiraz w/ 5% Grenache & 5% Mourvèdre. Medium-high intensity nose offers lovely meaty, black & blue fruit, blackberry, black pepper spice, anise, clove & gentle wood spice aromas rising out of the glass. On the medium-full bodied, structured palate, it has good fruit concentration and is slightly warming with delicious dark berry, blackberry, black pepper spice, meaty, earthy & licorice flavours. Slightly tangy on mid-palate, w/ fresh, balanced acidity, and refined, slightly grippy tannins. Savoury, earthy, and cocoa notes linger on the long, juicy finish. Tasted Dec/2021. Score: 90+ pts
