WS 94 Wine Spectator:
Distinctive, featuring a ripe, plush, creamy core of raspberry coulis and maraschino cherry flavors, with sophisticated notes of dark chocolate, rosemary and cigar box lingering in the background, showing some restraint. In the end, this delivers plenty of harmony on the long, lush and velvety finish.
Dark, rich and bold, with a velvety richness to the dense tannins, providing the backbone for thick flavors of black walnut liqueur, blueberry syrup, sandalwood and espresso. Gains intensity on the long finish. Not for the faint of heart. Drink now through 2030.
This is the wine you buy when you are celebrating life’s greatest moments, it is an absolute delight. Velvet Glove Shiraz is truly delicious.
Deep purple-black and a little closed on the nose with very pure blackberry and plum preserves, some red fruit and floral highlights intermingled with menthol, espresso and a whiff of coconut and spices, the full-bodied Velvet Glove is a big, rich and concentrated wine with a great tannic backbone that is both firm and fine. It is complemented by refreshing acidity and a very long finish with the licorice and chocolate coming through. Drink it now to 2030.
