Tasting Notes:

An intensely dark blood dye red with a black, squid ink hue with a subtle yet sophisticated nose that teases the brain with assorted fruits that intrigue. Smokey, dusty coffee beans and burnt chocolate encapsulate the senses.
The palate displays black pepper, liquorice, clove and thyme hit the tastebuds and get the heart beating that little bit faster. Strong blackcurrant and blackberry combine well with the leathery, earthy, “spicy” cedar oak, cigar box of a typical Australian full bodied Shiraz.

90 Points - Raymond Chan 
"Full, dark, black-hued garnet-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is firmly concentrated with intense aromas of black-berried fruits along with savoury earthy complexities, black pepper, liquorice and tar, unveiling a little black herb and mineral detail. The aromatics show a little lift. Full-bodied, the palate has a well-concentrated core of ripe blackberry fruit with subtle complexing notes of liquorice, tar, earth and minerals. The mouthfeel is rounded with fine-grained, flowery tannin extraction, and integrated acidity. This has linearity and drive, and the concentrated heart leads to a lingering finish of black fruits, liquorice and minerals. This is a concentrated, firm, black-fruited Shiraz with complexing earth, liquorice, mineral and tar detail and a fine, flowery grip. Match with lamb, beef and venison over the next 5-6 years."

The 2013 vintage had two brief heat spikes prior to the beginning of March that compressed the vintage, with all varieties ripening hot on the heels of each other. “Best ever” fruit composition was supported well by vine and fruit condition, which was nonetheless excellent. The vintage followed the excellent 2012 vintage.
