A very attractive and decadent smelling Shiraz with interesting notes of black tea, cigar tobacco and tanned hide among the rich ripe fruit aromas. Black raspberrry and cherry flesh fill the palate, while the crushed velvet texture conquers the mouth and stays through the close. A hint of smoked meat unfolds on the very end of the finish.
