A multi-appellation blend which delivers plum, dark cherry, spice, vanilla and cocoa. It provides immediate gratification with its up-front personality but can go another 5 years in the cellar, if you so chose.
The name says it all: this is a big, fruit-driven Zin with a soft and succulent texture, and of course, 15.5% alcohol. Dark and red fruit jam, raisins, black tea and spice gush from the glass. A hedonistic wine in the truest sense.
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Dense purple in colour with a spicy, cedary, blackcurrant nose backed by vanilla oak; medium- to full-bodied, dry and elegant, firmly structured plum and blackcurrant flavours with a tannic lift on the finish. Hold for 5 years.
Dense purple-black in colour with a spicy, cedary, blackcurrant bouquet; full-bodied, dry and concentrated flavours of cassis, plum and mocha chocolate finishing on a pencil-lead note. A keeper.
Dense purple-black in colour with a cedary, blackcurrant nose backed by evident oak (at the moment); full-bodied, dry, richly extracted plum and blackcurrant flavours; beautifully balanced with an engaging note of bitterness on the finish.
A big and brash Syrah which clocks in with 15.5% alcohol, a thick texture and intense flavours of dark plum, blackberry, black cherry, balsamic, spice and cocoa. Long finish.
