2015 Marion Vineyard Grenache Shiraz
This wine shows the power and intensity that only old vines can bring. Aromas of raspberry, plum and cherry with menthol, tobacco and mint, that is so distinctive to this vineyard, layered over a touch of toasty oak. The palate is a juicy, round mouth full. The tannins are present enough for a beautiful structure but are soft, mellow and integrated into the abundance of fruit.
"This is a pretty damn good wine...Some days red wine drinkers just get lucky."
Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, September 2016
"With its current layer of bitter cooking chocolate, it's an adults-only Cherry Ripe you can drink."
