Ranked #5 of 15 1996 Shiraz from Adelaide Hills
Leather, seaweed; some subtle spiciness, an elegant wine, smooth and balanced. Red fruits; harmony and elegance; fine grained tannins; very drinkable wine already. Now to 13+ years.
95 Points James Halliday
Medium red-purple; the bouquet is full of sweet, dark cherry fruit, the palate similarly full of delicious dark cherry flavours, fine, lingering tannins and perfectly integrated and balanced oak. Drink to 2011.
