This is the top wine from this producer and in a recent blind tasting of Barossa Shiraz it was a virtual unanimous wine of the night. Inky purple in color, op0aque and bright. The nose has black raspberries, black pepper, slight black olive, and a hint of clay. On the palate, this is bright, not jammy, and delicious. Notes of black raspberries, with some coffee grounds and a hint of spice. Light tannins. Long finish. At age 13, this seems younger, and should go another twenty years. Great on its own, this should work well with Cassoulet.
