The lead aromatic of the Kay Brothers offerings, the 2016 Basket Pressed Shiraz is nevertheless a tasty glass of wine. It’s full-bodied and flows with creamy boysenberry fruit across the mid-palate before firming up on the long finish, where it picks up a hint of chocolate.

Big, ripe and generous, with vanilla-scented blackberry and blueberry flavors on a thick, velvety frame. Shows muscle, but stays balanced by perfumed notes of violet and lavender, lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2030
