($105; 92% shiraz and 8% viognier) Inky ruby. Explosively perfumed nose displays scents of dark berry preserves, kirsch, sassafras, violet and black olive, with a suave vanilla undertone. Broad, chewy blackcurrant and mulberry flavors are framed by velvety tannins and energized by spicy mineral and cracked pepper notes. Juicy and sweet but solidly built, with strong finishing lift and urgency. Really hangs onto the palate, leaving floral and spice notes behind.

The 2007 Descendant is composed of 92% Shiraz and 8% Viognier sourced from a single vineyard. Super-fragrant with a floral lift from the Viognier component, it gives up exotic scents of smoke, bacon fat, Asian spices, and wild blueberry. Voluptuous on the palate with loads of succulent fruit (a rarity in this challenging vintage), it has impeccable balance and 4-6 years of aging potential.

A firm, focused red, offering dark berry and licorice flavors under a layer of chewy tannins. Has enough intensity to carry it through, if this sheds some of the tannin with age. Shiraz and Viognier.
