Pepper, spice and tobacco notes are fragrant and bold up front, with dark chocolate, toasted coconut, herb and caramel details to the core of wild blackberry and blueberry flavors. The tannins are dense but polished. Shiraz and Cabernet. Drink now through 2031.

A blend of 72% Shiraz and 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2017 Enchanted Path weighs in at a labeled 16.5% alcohol, yet (when served at the proper temperature) it doesn’t come across as being overripe or hot. It’s unabashedly full-bodied, with notes of blackberry, blueberry and cassis, yet it retains a savory edge, rich, velvety tannins and a long, intense finish. Drink: 2019-2025.
As our take on the quintessential Australian blend, this perfectly proportioned wine gets its generosity from the Shiraz, whilst the Cabernet provides structure. Fragrant raspberries and hints of toasty butterscotch fill the bouquet, whilst maraschino cherry notes greet you upon first sip. With an incredible depth formed by its fine tannins, the finish of vanilla crème to round out the palate creates something truly magical.
