Wine SpectatorThe toasted herb notes are distinctive, offering rosemary and bay leaf accents to the dried cherry and blackberry core, with accents of fresh orange zest and plenty of cigar box details. Expressive, especially on the finish. Drink now through 2030. 13,412 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastIn a sea of dense, dark-fruited Barossa Shiraz, it can be a refreshing change to find something with a little more elegance and high fruit tones, even if the aromas venture a slightly into soap territory. Ripe strawberry mingles with baking spices, Dr. Pepper and a savory note. The tannins are tongue-gripping but balanced by a nice acidity and a herbal character on the finish. Drink now-2025.
