Petaluma Adelaide Hills Shiraz

This wine is a delightful juxtaposition between the gorgeously pure fruit of a warm site in a warm vintage in a cool region, and the profoundly mineral, textural, granite-like tannin structure that defines this special vineyard. A wine of outstanding length and refinement, with fragrant notes of lifted violets, pure red cherries, plums and blackberries. $37.50 at Cracka.
