"This wine presents with dramatically deep, dark notes of vibrant reds and purples. Deep Blackberry, black plum and cola aromas combine with black pepper, anise, sweet molasses and vanilla bean. Flavors of rich, ripe, blackberry are laced with a hint of raspberry, mocha and sweet toasted vanillin oak, evident of the time in new French barrels. This is a dense structured wine, yet with a charming sense of style."
"93 pts ... Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2008 Rustom Farm Sandbox Shiraz is profoundly scented of plum pudding, creme de cassis and mocha with underlying Chinese five spice and menthol nuances. Full-bodied, voluptuously fruited and possessing a velvety texture, it gives a good, long and spicy finish. Drink it now to 2020+." --05/14

$15.9991 WA Oh my goodness! What full-bodies power and delicious flavors! Dark purple fruits, chocolate and leather combine for a very long and satisfying mouthful. Terrific now if you enjoy big wines and so well-balanced that it is destined to age even further beautifully.

$20.9992 JH Yummy! Smooth and luscious dark red fruits and a little spice go on and on in a most pleasing manner. Certainly could sit for a while but very delicious now.

$27.99Medium-bodied dark fruits overlay fine tannins, oak and a bit of licorice. Very satisfying and smooth, and very much contrary to the big, bruising, jammy Shiraz stereotype. Great for pairing with sturdy fish, white meats, and vegetable dishes.
Temporarily out, back in August.
