New Releases from Australia (Jul 2006)

Dark ruby color. Huge bouquet of smoky, almost jammy blackberry and black cherry liqueur and cured meat, with intriguing suggestions of dried rose and violet. Fresh and silky, with medium weight and vibrant red and dark berry flavors that expand and sweeten with air. Finishes with terrific energy and lift, picking up some fruity black pepper, baking spice and fresh floral notes that linger tenaciously.
