"Blended of 76% Shiraz and 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2009 Anaperenna Shiraz Cabernet presents a very deep purple-black color and pronounced aromas of black cherries and blackberries with an undercurrent of coffee, aniseed, damp loam, chocolate, cloves and menthol plus a hint of cedar. Very crisp, full and rich on the palate, it has firm very finely grained tannins, commendable concentration and a long bramble fruit finish. Drink it now to 2022+. Winemaker's Notes - The wine is a seamless fusion of two varieties: shiraz and cabernet sauvignon. An intriguing nose of chocolate, crushed herbs, cedar, blackberries and smoke leads into a tightly-focused palate with fine-grained tannin and incredible density. The finish is fresh and lively with flavours that linger."
