Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Deep Ruby, purple edges, with aromas of fresh berry fruits, cigar box spice and earthy mineral notes. On the palate rich ripe fruit, blackberry & black cherry with hints of dried spices. Good balance with slightly firm tannins, opened quickly, and lively acidity. Long finish, complex ending with oak, herb, mineral and earthy character. Will improve with short term aging, but don’t wait too long as you might be disappointed! Very nice Shiraz!

This wine offers a nose of black and blue berries, shoe leather and a hint of black olives. It’s a deep, rich bouquet. The flavors are similarly dark, with berries leading the way again. Black pepper and a nutmeg note also appear, with the fruit staying long on the finish. There is a good tannic structure, easily enough for a steak or beef stew. The oak regimen was nearly all used barrels, so the oak effect is quite nice, not a bit overdone.

This wine is inky dark in the glass and offers up a brawny nose of blackberry, plum and a smidge of tar. Cola and tea notes also appear. The palate shows dark fruit layered with savory spices and mint. The tannic structure is firm, but not overbearing, and the sip finishes dark and medium long.

This time around is much better. Less fruity and alcoholic than usual ossie Shiraz.

Ample red and purple berries. Some earthiness and some pepper on the finish.
