Sarsaparilla, toasted coconut and chocolate-covered coffee bean notes mingle with firm tannins and plush flavors of blackberry, plum and cherry compote. Juicy and smooth on the expressive finish. Drink now.

A straight-shooting blackberry style with a very plush and approachable palate, built for immediate enjoyment. Drink or hold.
The Barossa Valley Shiraz is generous in its dark plum and blackberry fruits. Notes of tar and graphite follow with hints of dried herbs and tobacco. The palate is rounded and supple with dark fruits and a supple tannin backbone which brings with it coffee ground and cedar flavors. The wine finishes with generous dark fruits and white pepper spice.
