This sensational Shiraz has a "grand Cru" feel in structure, flavor, and complexity. It's in its infancy, though its richness makes it very pleasurable even now. Deep, complex nose of peppery blueberry and blackberry fruits along with a seriously dark core of coffee, chocolate, and briary spice. Exceptionally well-balanced and seamless in feel from start to finish. Seems French-like in its youthful, slightly austere structure and texture. I'm sure it would reward a few more years of aging. Not an unfair price for a wine of this quality. - HK 2010-03-12
