Balance, elegance, complexity. This blend offers aromas and flavours of blackberry, raspberry, cherry, redcurrant, earth, black pepper, wild herbs, licorice, and cured meat, and it's like a happy marriage between southern France and northeastern Spain (without the imposing Rioja oak and Rhône/Midi funk), Tempranillo tartness lifting up the earthier, denser GSM to a level of delicate stability. What really stands out, though, is just how admirably restrained and understated this blend is, a far cry from stereotypical Aussie reds (and Shirazes in particular). It's also a fantastic value.
