Deep red and black with magenta rim. The nose is bright and intense, volumes of rich berries, plums and maraschino cherries. The aromas are continually evolving, also bringing cedary spice, subtle lavender, bitter chocolate, tar and fudge. The palate is currently very tight and restrained. 2009 brought wines of great flavor with elements of finesse and the 09 Ares is no exception. Juicy plums and blueberries dominate early to mid-palate, then underlying cedary chocolate notes emerge carrying the wine through to the late palate, tightening up again to a focused core of fruit, spice and tannin.

Supple, subtle and succulent, delivering an open-textured mouthful of rich red berry, black cherry, black tea and dusky spice character. Finishes with great clarity and transparency. Shiraz. Drink now through 2020. 375 cases made.

Deep purple-black colored, the 2009 Ares Shiraz is intensely scented of warm black plums, black cherry compote, dried mulberries and blackberry tart with underlying notes of cedar, licorice, hung meat and fertile soil. Full bodied, densely packed and generously layered with ripe berry flavors, it has a good backbone of medium to firm velvety tannins and racy acid, finishing long. Drink it 2014 to 2024+.
