A gorgeous wine, smooth, polished, silky and seductive, teeming with licorice- and exotic spice–tinged blackberry, cherry and roasted meat flavors. Exquisitely balanced, sporting a finish that keeps undulating for minutes on end. Magnificent stuff. Shiraz. Drink now through 2020. 7 cases imported.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2006 Hill of Grace has some oak poking through the red and blue fruit aromas, with underlying toast, marmite and sage hints. Medium to full-bodied, it is a very tight knit and youthful wine with crisp acid, medium to firm, finely grained tannins and a long finish. Drink it 2014 to 2030+.

Deep dark ruby ??garnet, violet reflections, delicate water rim. Black berries, blackberries, cassis, lime zest, delicate herbal spices with a hint of fine mint on the nose. Juicy, highly elegant, touch of red berries, silky tannins, underlaid with minerals, fine touch of orange on the finish, delicate notes of olives and lemons, black pepper on the finish, dark minerality in the aftertaste, great length, rightly belongs in the canon of the greatest wines in the world.

With its deep crimson color and violet hues, this wine captivates from the first glance. The nose reveals aromas of wild forest berry, sage and herbs. On the palate, flavors of black plum and underbrush intertwine, supported by fine tannins and a long supple finish.
