90 points "Wine Spectator 90 "Bright, lively, harmonious and generous. A sleek mouthful of blueberry, currant and plum flavors, neatly packaged with hints of cream and spice as the finish sails on. Drink now through 2015." Winery Notes "An intensely concentrated wine, the [yellow tail] Shiraz initially reveals aromas of ripe cherries, blackberries, chocolate and moccha. Delving deeper into this complex wine, cracked pepper and spice fragrance are apparent with sweet French oak aromas always present. The vanilla softness on the nose takes you into a full palate crammed with ripe fruits reminiscent of a basket of sweet summer berries. Seamless and well structured tannins complete this full bodied red wine." " Best 2007-2015
