A dark red with a vibrant purple hue, the aromatics are bright, elevated combinations of cassis, tobacco and spice-box yet with freshness and vitality. The palate is full bodied, meaty and complex - well integrated oak and tannin provide elements of structure to the wine and it finishes with impressive length.

Wine Advocate

The 2006 Shiraz "Savitar" was aged in 100% new oak, predominantly French. Purple-colored, the aromatics are a bit reticent initially, but soon scents of toasty oak, tar, licorice, scorched earth, and blueberry emerge. This leads to a wine which is more structured and less opulent than its peers. It will evolve for a minimum of 8-10 years and drink well through 2040.

Score: 94. —Jay Miller, October 2007.

Wine Spectator

Firm in texture, with lively blueberry and wild blackberry flavors poking through a layer of fine-grained tannins, finishing with real refinement. Best after 2009. 350 cases imported.

Score: 90. —Harvey Steiman, March 31, 2008.
