This is a very powerful blend combining Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon creating a wine with immense fruit weight and uninhibited length.
When you join the Enchanted Path and the Carnival of Love together, the two labels form one beautiful continuous love story.

‘Blended of 65% Shiraz and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2010 Enchanted Path was matured for 12 months in 85% new oak (97% American and 3% French). Very deep purple-black colored, it gives notes of ripe cassis and black cherry compote over hints of smoked bacon, dark chocolate, espresso, cedar and cloves. Very full bodied, densely packed and opulent in the mouth, it has a medium level of grainy tannins, very crisp acidity and a long finish with some mintiness coming through. ’.

A rich mouthful of compelling blackberry, black coffee, black cherry and black pepper flavors (see a trend here?) balances on a supple, velvety background and persists into a long and expressive finish. Just delish. Rating 93 - Drink now through 2018, Harvey Steiman, www.winespectator.com
Winery Tasting Notes
Dark opaque purple with ruby hue.
Varietal Cabernet notes dance among the vibrant fruit profile of the Shiraz presenting blackberry fruit, cassis, lifted anise spice with underlying plum jam and tar.
The palate offers a rich explosion of fruit, toasty oak, cedar notes, and layers of spice, with fine grain tannins and endless length.
