John Duval Entity Shiraz

Another Stellar Effort from famed Winemaker John Duval

2018 John Duval Entity Shiraz....$29.99* 
(compare to $33.99 at Total Wine and More for the 2016 vintage)
This is an amalgam of 48% Barossa and 52% Eden Valley parcels, an increased inclusion of Eden Valley material in the mix, which works well in this powerful vintage. The aromas are attractively spicy and complex with blackberries, blueberries and dark raspberries, as well as a dark stony edge and some violet-like florals. Lots here. The palate has a very intense core of such vivid blackberry flavors. Supple and velvety, very long and rich, the core of concentrated fruit here is impressive.
Rated 95/100 James Suckling
Rated 97/100 James Halladay

*6 Pack Case pricing available
