A big, rich wine, the 2015 Georgia's Paddock Shiraz offers deep, earthy notes of black olive and espresso that complement the blackberry and plum fruit. There's a hint of menthol that helps lift the wine and avoid any undue sense of heaviness—a notable accomplishment in a wine that's labeled at 15% alcohol. Full-bodied and velvety in texture, complex and long, with two decades of aging potential, there's simply nothing to criticize here.

Fragrant notes of dried rose petal and white truffle indicate something special. Inside, this offers a fleshy, velvety mix of toasted rye bread, spicy plum jam and framboise flavors. Elegant and plush, but with plenty of power within, flexing on the expressive, expansive finish that goes on and on. Drink now through 2035. 1,500 cases made.
