Brilliant ruby. Sexy red berry and lavender pastille aromas are complicated by vanilla and cola. Fleshy raspberry and boysenberry flavors show very good lift, building spiciness and suave florality. Gains sweetness and depth with air, finishing with sexy notes of floral pastilles and slow-building tannins. Quite elegant given its heft and depth.

A blend of 78% Shiraz, 12% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2012 The Ball Buster has a pronounced nose of creme de cassis, mocha and dried plums with underlying hints of yeast extract and licorice. Rich, expressive and well-balanced, this full-bodied wine is bursting with black fruit flavor and velvety textured goodness. It finishes with great persistence. Drink it now to 2017+.

Rich, focused and generous, with smoke- and herb-accented cherry and roasted meat flavors. Succulent finish. Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2017. 25,000 cases made.
