"Ink-dark, with a savory edge to the layers of black cherry, red plum, raspberry and licorice that rise up from the velvety tannins, forming a generous, plush finish. Best from 2016 through 2020."

"A 100% McLaren Vale blend aged one year in 90% new American oak, the deep purple-black colored 2012 Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz shows beautiful black fruit, warm cassis and mulberry notes with a spot of preserved plums, anise and yeast extract. This very spicy, very big and full-bodied wine is rich, viscous and concentrated. It finishes long and just a little warm. Drink it now to 2020+.
This wine is like taking a bite from a blueberry muffin. A mouthful full of rich, creamy vanilla followed by an explosion of blueberries. A powerful wine with vibrant dark berry fruits, plum, and chocolate cream. A silky texture is laced with luscious layers of fresh fruit, spice, coffee and a seamless finish that lasts for eternity.
