The Formula, "Robert's Shiraz" 2013

Small Gully Wines

Opaque ruby. Aromas of dried cherry, cassis, licorice and mocha, with a peppery nuance adding lift. Sappy dark berry flavors show an appealing sweetness and a hint of vanilla. Plush yet lively Shiraz with strong closing thrust; smooth tannins shape the wine's exuberant fruit.

Reviews

  • "89 points. Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2013 The Formula Robert’s Shiraz gives a tar and black earth-laced nose giving way to a core of blackberries and mulberries plus a touch of licorice. Full-bodied with a nice balance of savory and earthy, black fruit flavors, it gives a good amount of character and chew in the medium to long finish." (vinous)
