"A stunning wine of immense depth & integrity. Seamless from start to finish, this starts off strong & keeps building through the long, powerful finish. The flavors center on blueberry, plum, meaty cherry, cedar & cream, with a hint of mint, & the tannins are so finely polished they gleam." - Wine Spectator
"The 2006 Shiraz “Carnival of Love” was sourced from a single vineyard. The sensational nose, consisting of violets, lilacs, meat, game, leather, blueberry, & chocolate, leaps from the glass. On the palate this full-bodied wine somehow manages to combine power with elegance. The sweet tannins are well-concealed & the finish lasts for at least one minute. It will provide pleasure for 25 years..." - The Wine Advocate
