Opaque ruby. Expansive, spice-accented blueberry and cherry liqueur aromas are sharpened by a smoky mineral element and a hint of cracked pepper. Juicy, appealingly sweet black and blue fruit flavors show very good depth as well as energy and pick up a sexy floral quality with aeration. Supple and seamless on the long, subtly tannic finish, which echoes the blue fruit and floral notes. -- Josh Raynolds

The 2014 Red Silk Shiraz has a deep garnet color and nose of baked blackberries and black plums with mocha, earth and licorice suggestions. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated in the mouth, it delivers a lot of flavor and gorgeously soft tannins, finishing with a lively lift.

The firm dark berry, espresso and black walnut flavors have a spicy side, with clove and sarsaparilla notes. This has plenty of oomph on the finish. Drink now through 2027.
