Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Shiraz Block 6 has aromas of blueberry pie filling and warm black currants with hints of dark chocolate, cherry cordial, violets and yeast extract. Medium to full-bodied, the palate fills the mouth with structured, youthful black fruits and savory nuances, supported by silken tannins and a lively backbone, finishing with great length.

Inky ruby. Heady red fruit preserve, vanilla and peppery spice qualities on the expressive nose. Sweet and broad on the palate, offering energetic raspberry and cherry liqueur flavors along with mocha, licorice and a touch of succulent herbs. Chewy tannins build steadily on a very long, smoke-tinged finish that leaves bitter cherry and cracked pepper notes behind.
