Lastly, the 2006 The Footbolt Shiraz (which contains a bit of Grenache) offers fragrant aromas of wood smoke, game, and blueberry. Layered and balanced, it will evolve for several years and drink well through 2017.

Firm, with an intriguing overtone of violet to the dark berry and cherry fruit. There's a layer of grippy tannins, but the fruit wins out on the finish. Best from 2010 through 2014. 12,000 cases imported.–HS

Inky ruby. Powerfully scented aromas of high-pitched red berries, cherry and minerals. Deep black raspberry and candied blueberry flavors coat the palate and are given support by fine-grained tannins. Finishes silky, sweet and long, with very good clarity and cut.
