A terrific, black smoke, big oak red with brooding dark fruit and cedar notes. Perfect for when you almost got a hole in one... Yes, this is named after the famous golfer who owns the winery. This wine is a blend of mostly shiraz with some cabernet sauvignon with small dashes of cinsault, mourvèdre, grenache and viognier grapes. Savoury, meaty note with mouth-watering juiciness. Let's go back to the clubhouse and discuss.

Food pairings: grilled beef medallions in a peppercorn sauce.

This is a pseudo-Southern Rhone blend using Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault, Mourvèdre and Viognier, with the addition of Cabernet Sauvignon; easy style as its label suggests; sweet berries, crusty nose, herbaceous, light yet quite flavorful and dry finish.
