This is a wine that’s excels showing both regionality and varietal attributes. Deep purple red with complex aromas of dark berries, spearmint, cedar cigar box, leather, spice and smoky oak. The palate delivers all the nose promises and more. Vanilla oak, dark fruits, pepper spice at front along with greenish but smooth tannin. All this gives a smooth complex mouthfeel along with the textual feeling from the 2% Viognier in this wine. Value for only $35 RRP enjoy now or in the future with careful cellaring. Stephen Read
