About

92

"A cherry-flavored nose that also offers up aromas of blackberry pie, cedar and spices. Medium to full body, grainy tannins, lots of fresh blue and black fruit and a chewy finish. Drink in 2021. Screw cap."

90 Wine Enthusiast

"Tightly wound and somewhat closed, the plump plum, blueberry and spice tones of this wine unravel with time in the glass. The palate brings taut, earthy tannins and fairly prominent oak. Drink 2020–2026."

Product Description:

"McLaren Vale through and through! Here is the epitome of great Shiraz from d'Arenberg's world-renowned region.

This is a wine that seduces. The nose is loaded with black pepper and baking spices. Licorice and aniseed aromas are lifted by bucket loads of red and black plummy berry fruit. It's not just fruit and spice on the nose here, though. This is a complex wine showing fresh mushroom and forest floor characters with subtle hints of aged oak and scented glimpses of seasoned leather and pipe tobacco. The seduction continues on the palate with a foreboding rush of dark fruit, blood orange, charcuterie, and peaty earth. All wrapped around a robust concentrated core of chewy, round tannin. This vibrant tannin line carries through to a long, spicy, mineral finish.

A wine any lover of Shiraz will happily be seduced by." - Winemaker
