Silky and inviting, with layers of perfumed blackberry and smoky dark fruit, while the palate is laced with peppery spice.

A rich, blackberry and raspberry nose. Softly supple palate with a fresh and vivid core of ripe raspberry, red-plum and blackberry flavors. Nicely rounded out, with some good concentration. Drink now. Screw cap

The 2017 Yalumba Samuel's Collection Shiraz brings a pleasing mix of nuances onto the palate. This wine exhibits dried earth, rustic spices, and anise aromas and flavors that would pair beautifully with slowly-braised meat dishes. (Tasted: July 27, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
The Samuel's Collection Shiraz Shiraz 2018 is a deep, dark, purple red in color. This is a generously aromatic wine with ripe plums, anise, lavender, currants and dark chocolate with complex notes of savory spices. On the palate purple fruits, liquorice and violets are followed by pepper and spice. This is a full bodied, generously flavoured classic Barossa Shiraz.
