TASTING NOTE: Deeper and richer than the 2014, the 2015 Shiraz G.A.M. (which represents the initials of the Mitolo children) offers a smokin' good bouquet of mulled spices, chocolate, salted caramel, and licorice. This flows to a ripe, full-bodied, opulent Shiraz that has terrific depth of fruit, a layered mid-palate, sweet tannin, and a clean, balanced style that will evolve nicely for a decade or more. Maturity 2018-2028. Score - 95 (Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com, March 15, 2018) Price $ 37.95
Bottle Size 750 mL
