Heartland Spice Trader Blend 2012
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Spice Trader Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple in color and shows off a pronounced cassis and black plum nose with hints of eucalyptus, star anise, cloves and pepper. Medium to full-bodied with lots of mouth-filling and juicy blackberry flavor, it is supported by medium level, grainy tannins and refreshing acid before finishing with very good length. Drink it now to 2017.
Wine SpectatorDark and peppery, with blackberry and cherry fruit at the core, picking up licorice and a touch of char as the finish lingers against polished tannins. Drink now. 2,500 cases imported.
