Beautiful ruby colour. Blackberry, smoke and tobacco. Rich, full bodied, smooth and well balanced. Pair with a great steak.
Would make a great gift! $50 wine for someone turning 50!

|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
A beautiful rich and opulent Shiraz from McLaren Vale, Australia. Ripe red field berry, eucalyptus persistence on a long finish. Pair with cous cous salad with raisins or roasted pork tenderloin. Tasted March 2017. 91 points.
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Intense but not overbearing, bold and fruity Shiraz from Casella's top tier offerings. Juicy cherry, blackberry, a hint of menthol, sweet spice and velvety tannins with a long finish. This would make a great gift.
|Craig Haynes - WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Opened this 2012 in 2020 and was impressed with the results. From deep ruby hues surfaced scents of rich dark berry preserves, mint, eucalyptus, oregano and cola that mingled beautifully with a desert dry, full bodied palate punctuated with lush dark fruit layers highlighted with savoury spices and welcoming velvety tannins. Pair with coffee braised beef brisket. Enjoy.

|Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Lots of blueberries, plums, leather, earth, bitter chocolate, and mint astringency. Extra dry, high tannins but well integrated. long juicy finish. Score 90. (S.Segard, reviewed March 26, 2017).
|Dan Carkner reviewed this wine as follows:|
Very dark cherry yet translucent, mellow aromas of stewed plum, vanilla, and leather take charge. Oak influence is very clear with tobacco, baking spices, and old barn wood showing through. Tart cherry and dried prune are strong on the palate which is rich and complex. A medium long finish hangs on to the dried fruit and tobacco. A wine to spend some time with.
