The 2006 Shiraz (65%)-Cabernet Sauvignon (35%) WOMS , an acronym for Weapon of Mass Seduction, sourced from vines ranging in age from 45 to 109 years, and aged for 18 months in new and one year French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it reveals a sexy perfume of pain grille, underbrush, pencil lead, black currant, and blueberry. Full-bodied on the palate, it demands 4-6 years of cellaring to reveal its full potential. The tannins are ripe and there are tons of spicy fruit so it should provide satisfying drinking from 2013 to 2026.
