  • My last bottle of long time favorite. Full of ripe plum, blackberry and blueberry witha hint of clove, sweetness and pepper on the finish. This is one of the more balanced Shiraz I have tasted. Discovered this at Emerils Restaurant at Universal studies almost 10 years ago. Sadly it is now very difficult to find in the US.

  • This '04 was showing well and still holding its fruit nicely, compared to the '02 which was showing its age.

    Dark garnet colored, full bodied, rich concentrated black and blue fruits with tones of spice, hints of vanilla, smoke and pepper.

  • As this ages it needs additional time to open. By the second day, it was everything I had previously experienced. Full of blueberry, plum, cassis with warm spices on the finish. The slightly medicinal flavor very apparent 3 or 4 years ago is still there but has softened and is well integrated. Nice medium finish with a hint of cocoa.

  • Deep purple in color. Visually appealing. Nose of slate and overripe raisins. Full bodied, with currant, clove and white pepper on the palate. Nicely balanced with a long finish. One of our favorites. Full bodied and spicy to stand up to pre Super Bowl hors d'ouvres.

  • Continues to get better and better. Opaque, dark purple in the glass. Over time, the astringency and spice so evident when young has morphed into deep, complex and layered notes of mocha, clove, blackberry and a bit of plum. Although delicious in its youth, this is for me, a much more interesting wine as a 9 year old. Still 2 bottles left.
