About

92

(raised in used French and American oak barrels): Opaque ruby. Pungent, smoke- and floral-accented aromas of red and dark berry liqueur, with a peppery accent building with air. Juicy, penetrating and alluringly sweet, offering vibrant black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors braced by tangy acidity. Finishes smooth and very long, with resonating violet and cracked pepper notes.

Product Description:

"The wines must, as usual speak for themselves and to that end the Cimickys have decided that only Estate fruit will be used so that we can completely guarantee the quality from their patch of ground to the bottle. Consequently the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon hail from their original plantings of 1973."

"Charles Cimicky is the most Invisible Man of the Barossa. Probably Australia. He is a winemaker who devotes himself entirely and somewhat relentlessly to his craft. Over the past 30 years this reclusive and somewhat shy person has consistently sought growth and improvement in all aspects of his trade. His devotion knows no end; he has, however, no time and definitely no inclination to promote his fine product. So Jennie Cimicky calls him the Invisible Man." -Importer
