This was a stunning shiraz. Deep ruby color, fantastic nose--red fruits and cedar predominated. Full on the tongue, again with lots of red fruit. Very balanced--tannins were evident but muted.Much more than a fruit bomb. Developed in the glass for 45 minutes. This is drinking superbly now, but will continue to develop for several years.

Tasted for a second time and I liked it much better. Fat mid-palate. Maybe it will better intergrate with time. Lots of fruit but not flabby. Has enough acid and tannins. Curious to see how it would develop in 4-6 years. Like this better than the 04 Quintessa.
