I most say that I was not impressed about this wine. I have had it before , but yesterday it just felt wrong. Tired with heavy sweet fruit , almost Amarone-like style. The Ganache ? Maybe a bad bottle.......Did not finished it.
It's an excellent modern cross between Australian Shiraz and a Jumilla Monastrell. Full body color with big tears. Intense nose of brambly wild berries, incense, new oak and some heat (15% alc). Entry is balanced with acidity and tannins at very reasonable levels. Palate is rich with red macerated fruits, black tea, and licorice. Finishes medium in length with excellent notes of fruit and oak. Plenty of fruit, high alcohol and good level of tannins suggests this can age for a good 5-7 years. I wouldn't wait much longer than that.
Hint of earth on thE nose with bright strawberries, caramel, subtle leather notes. Taste iS amazing, subtle chocolate, with a huge smack of strawberries, candied cherries, almost like skittles. Firm tannins make this a wine that will age amazingly.
Deep purple color. Aromas of black fruits, licorice, oak and spices. Ripe, thick fruit in the mouth with excellent depth and length. The oak and tannins , however, are still a bit rough and the wine could be better integrated. Try again in two years.
