Deep vibrant red.
Lifted aromas of ripe berries, rich plum, chocolate and spice.
A balanced medium weight wine with a lively palate of red berries, plum, dark chocolate and spice. Silky smooth tannins from oak maturation round out the palate.
Has been crafted to be enjoyed immediately but will cellar up to and possibly beyond 2012.

Great Red Tasting - Shiraz Blends
Honest, rounded, well balanced, easy-drinking blend. It's medium-bodied, yet with stacks of mouth-filling flavour. Ideal current drinking wine.
Mick Plozza, Bairnsdale Advertiser, July 2009
The 2006 Promised Land Shiraz Cabernet is a rich, spicy wine with great mid palate presence and generosity. Ginger, spicy berry fruit and vanilla bean are all evident across the palate, while the finish is that of Cabernet with a fine persistence of mint and cassis and lingering tannins. It has a deep red ruby hue with rich purple undertones. The nose has varietal aromas of cherry, jam and minty perfume are merged with a subtle chocolate, tobacco oak. A ripe plummy, berry mid palate complimented with a light herbal vivaciousness, and a hint of pepper. The oak shows immense toasty, vanillin length and integration. Overall a developing, lively wine selected from quality varietal parcels, from which Wakefield have forged a superior reputation. The Wakefield Shiraz Cabernet marries well the strength of American oak and the subtle length of French oak.
