Description | Details | Rating

Deep intense red with a purple hue. Notes of blueberry, plum, mulberry, French lavender, pen ink, white pepper, peppered steak, and scorched earth. Displaying some lovely fruit restraint, this Shiraz provides gentle notes of blueberry, mulberry, plum, and blueberry pastille, which slowly emerge with air contact. Hints of white pepper, warm granite, and French lavender add layers of complexity and intrigue. Big chewy tannins emerge through the mid-palate, creating a very muscular structure that runs the length of the palate suggesting a very long future ahead. Notes of black tea, saddle oil, and peppered steak penetrate the late-palate.

"Brought up in just 6% new French oak, the 2016 Shiraz Lily’s Garden offers terrific depth of fruit and richness, yet also balance and complexity. Black raspberries, cassis, vanilla bean, and exotic spices all emerge from this full-bodied, silky, elegant Shiraz that’s beautifully balanced on the palate. It has plenty of fruit, building tannin, and a great finish. Give it a few years and will keep for upwards of a decade."

"Elegant notes of pencil shavings and red cherries appear on the nose of the 2016 Shiraz Lily’s Garden. It’s a taut, medium to full-bodied wine with fine-grained, almost silky tannins, a wiry core of red fruit and just the right touch of oak for balance on the focused, lingering finish. "

"Stylish, polished and satiny, with plenty of spice box and cedar accents to complement the vanilla bean, mocha and chocolate-covered cherry flavors, lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2028. 2,750 cases made."
