- It will age gracefully over the next 10 - 20 years
- Douglas Neal used to be second in command for the illustrious Giaconda winery and now has broadened the horizons with Paradise IV.
- Blend of Cabernet and Shiraz
Earth and cedar notes mingle with mulberry and raspberry notes. A concentrated and powerful wine with focussed cedary tannins swathed in supple fruit notes that range from red to black fruits. . Rich and powerful yet not heavy, showing supple and mouth filling qualities that maintain a long presence on the palate.
Very deep red colour with a good tint of purple, the bouquet tobacco-like at first and eerily reminiscent of Saint-Émilion. As it airs, the black berry fruits and earthy mineral nuances rise up and dominate. It's full-bodied and firm in the finish, but without any hint of greenness in the flavours or tannins. The structure is exemplary. The shiraz fills the middle-palate without being obvious, allowing the cabernets to carry the wine. (85% cabernet sauvignon, 12% shiraz, 3% cabernet franc)
