Top Notes For
David Shaw

Dense dark purple-red, highly extracted. Weedy minty buttery notes in nose. Blackberry, cherry and eucalyptus flavors initially , slightly hot, cherry cough syrup finish. Bitter aftertaste, moderate astringency. Flavors integrate and tannins soften somewhat after an hour - cherry, blueberry and blackberry flavors with length and a hint of mint-eucalyptus and black currant, with the tactile sensation of black pepper on the finish. Give this one an hour’s decanting before enjoying, a joy of a wine, well balanced and easy drinking, not remotely overripe but on point varietally in its expressive flavor profile. Plum flavors eventually emerge 2-3 hours after opening.
