But, what does it taste like?

Pretty, floral, red cherry and strawberry aromatics with the raspberry and spice of cool climate Shiraz adding punch to the palate.

These challenging times call for a Modern Red with old fashioned values. The seductive Pinot Noir sharing bottle space with the hot headed Shiraz; making wine great again.
