From the outstanding 2005 vintage and scoring 88/100 Parker points, “The 2005 Shiraz spent two years in 50% new oak, equal parts French and American. Yields were a modest 2 tons per acre. The wine is crimson-colored with an attractive perfume of espresso, mocha, and blackberry. Medium to full-bodied, on the palate the wine narrows slightly although the fruit is ripe and sweet. With a few years in the bottle, it may well round out and my score will then appear conservative.” Drink now – 2019.
