"Emily’s Paddock Shiraz and Cabernet Franc comes from the smallest vineyard on the estate with nothing else planted on it but the grapes for this wine. 3% Cabernet Franc is co-planted with the Shiraz and also co-harvested and co-fermented. The style here is tighter, structured, somewhat backward and yet lends an enticing earthy / savory complexity. The 2008 Emily’s Paddock Shiraz and Cabernet Franc possesses a medium-deep garnet color and earthy, mineral aromas with some iron ore, loam, fresh blackberry, a touch of black olive and violets all coming through on the nose. Fine firm tannins and crisp acidity give taut structure to this full-bodied, almost old-world style wine. The finish is very long but restrained developmentally. Give this wine another year or two in bottle and enjoy drinking it to 2022+. 1000 cases produced. 95 Points/Drink 2011-2022+" - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
