    ($49) Bright purple. Seductive bouquet of smoky dark berries, candied cherry and sandalwood. Licorice and floral pastille notes emerge with air and carry onto the palate, adding complexity to the sweet cassis and blueberry flavors. Leaves dark berry, vanilla and cola flavors behind on the long, sappy finish. Captivating already, but I'd bet on this gaining complexity over the next six or seven years.

    Rich and sweet start but then rather obvious added acid.

    Ripe and round, with a smoky, slightly burnt edge to the red berry and roasted red pepper flavors, lingering softly. 3,000 cases imported.

    The 2006 Shiraz 'G.A.M.ƒ?_ (the initials of the Mitolo children) was aged in French and American oak, 60% new. Opaque purple in color, it has an aromatic array of roasted coffee, violets, lavender, pepper, Asian spices, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. In the mouth it is velvety-textured, deep, concentrated, opulent, and altogether hedonistic. It will evolve for 5-7 years and drink well through 2026.

    A lovely, subtle Shiraz that opens up beautifully. Everything in perfect balance.

    Not as good as I expected. A little flat. Fruit rich but not much concentration or complexity.

    This wine may have suffered some heat damage. The taste was off in my opinion.
