    Glossary

Winery Notes: The nose is wild; brambles and game with violet undertones. Concentrated lush mouth filling palate. Hints of roasted coffee. This powerful wine finishes with assertive tannins. Very much in the Rhone style. This is the first release from our Estate Vineyard amphitheatre block. After several small crops in previous years we now feel the vineyard is producing top quality fruit and can produce a stand alone wine.

This is so opulent and decadent with foie gras, meat and berries. Intense now. Full and velvety, with wonderful flavors. Layered and outrageous. Wonderful now. James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, Oct/2011

This has great presence, offering a focused mouthful of ebullient flavors, ranging from blackberry and cherry to tar, wet pavement and licorice notes, all of it sailing over refined tannins and lingering enticingly. Drink now through 2020. 10 cases imported. –HS

From fruit sourced from their partner Graham Warner's vineyard about 3.5 kilometers down the road, the 2008 Warner Vineyard Shiraz is co-fermented with about 1.5% Roussanne. The grapes get a bit of a cold soak before the fermentation begins naturally with a 3-4 week maceration period on skins. "We're aiming to make wines with tannins and backbone without overly sweet fruit," Rick explained as we tasted. Deep garnet-purple in color, this wine has intense aromas of crushed blackberries, violets, red roses, red licorice, black pepper, some game / hung meat, allspice and mocha. With medium-high acid and a high level of very fine tannins, this concentrated yet elegant, medium to full-bodied Shiraz has a long spicy finish. Cellar it for another year or two and enjoy it through 2020+
