    An herbal streak runs through the center, adding a savory element to the plum and cassis flavors, with cedar and spice details and moderately firm tannins. Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2027.

    This wine offers ripe red cherry, strawberry and plum, with lashings of spicy vanillin-cola oak. The palate sits heavy with aggressive tannins and heat from the alcohol makes the fruit feels a little sour.

    Screw cap. Wonderful blend, and a great value. It is round, full bodied, ripely flavored (blackberry, loganberry, toast), very well balanced, and long on the finish. Will develop a bit over the next year or so. Great value. 13.5% [2019-2021]
