Oliverhill ‘Red Silk’ Shiraz 2014

Tasting Notes

A beautiful vintage has produced a wine with an inky dark purple color that is dense and almost light capturing. The nose combines blackberry and blueberry fruit tones accentuated with oak spice, a touch mocha/chocolate and cracked pepper. Concentrated but nicely balanced on its medium fuller to fuller frame, the tannins are powdery and quite fine giving some focusing grip to the sweet blue and black fruit flavors. This is quite juicy in the mid palate but finishes dry on its persistent finish. Just now starting to open up this concentrated effort should drink beautifully over the next 3-4 years. If you drink it young make sure to let it open up as it will flesh out nicely and gain suppleness.

Opaque ruby. Expansive, spice-accented blueberry and cherry liqueur aromas are sharpened by a smoky mineral element and a hint of cracked pepper. Juicy, appealingly sweet black and blue fruit flavors show very good depth as well as energy and pick up a sexy floral quality with aeration. Supple and seamless on the long, subtly tannic finish, which echoes the blue fruit and floral notes. — Josh Raynolds

The 2014 Red Silk Shiraz has a deep garnet color and nose of baked blackberries and black plums with mocha, earth and licorice suggestions. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated in the mouth, it delivers a lot of flavor and gorgeously soft tannins, finishing with a lively lift.

The firm dark berry, espresso and black walnut flavors have a spicy side, with clove and sarsaparilla notes. This has plenty of oomph on the finish. Drink now through 2027.
