    Amazing subtle red with packed a flavorful punch then finishes soft and moist. Refreshing red with earthy, blackberry, leather and black pepper notes.

    I was excited about this wine because I really enjoyed the Crocodillo. However this is a big wine in need of a big meal.Great full wine for a lower alcohol wine. Fruity on the nose with a crisp finish.

    I routinely scamper away from wine at this price point but found myself alone with a glass of it at a family gathering during the recent holiday. Very impressed by what it brings to palate. Earthy grip, dirt, rocks, sand, gravel, all good, especially for such a low priced wine. Some fruit but complexities are the star. Even detected southern Dominican cigar wrapper and variety of spices on finish. Bravo, Thorny Devil, Bravo

    Usually I approach Shiraz with trepidation, because it can just be too alcoholic and extracted for my taste. But I was pleasantly surprised with the Pretty Sally. It's just really well made and shows great varietal character. Visual: deep brown-ruby core with medium ruby-pink rim; slow tearing due to high alcohol Nose: developing aromas of spicy meats, plum, baked cherry, campfire smoke, dried herbs, tobacco, stewed strawberry, licorice, toast, vanilla, pepper, cinnamon, raisin & nuts Palate: some pronounced tannin and alcohol, but not overbearing. Rich flavors of plum, blackberry, raisins, toffee, caramel, raspberry, blueberry. The finish is long and toasty with black fruit nuances. Very smooth. Evidence of oak being used well!!
