"Deep garnet in color, this wine offers aromas of warm raspberry preserves, red plums and mulberries with hints of licorice and chocolate. Medium bodied and medium-sweet with balancing acid and a medium level of chewy tannins, it has a good persistence of bubbles and a long finish."
"Red currants, cranberry, and dried Italian herbs on the nose. The palate features red, blue, and black fruits melded with sweet spiced cinnamon, vanilla chai, and cedar oak. Fine silky tannins add savory balance and length to the palate."
"91 Points - Robert Parker It has a lifted bouquet with blackberry, Provencal herbs and a touch of oyster shell. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe dark berry fruit laced with balsamic and white pepper. It is harmonious and refined with a svelte, caressing finish. This is a very well-crafted Shiraz. Drink now-2017."
"Light and distinctive with spicy cherry and anise flavors, which echo nicely on a soft finish. Pair with rich full flavored pasta, grilled beef or chicken dishes."
"91 Pts. Wine Spectator The 2011 vintage of Bella's Garden features a dark, almost black color with aromas of lovely red fruits including subtle raspberries, five spice, cedar and sandlewood. Juicy red fruits burst onto the palate and roll on and on, balanced with fine tannins and subtle oak. This wine has great length and an elegant framework."
"97 Rating! Antonio Galloni Black core, deep red rim. Leaping out of the glass, this wines aromas are vibrant and inviting. It is full of mocha, spice, subtle vanilla and kirsch with dark chocolate, black olives and satsuma plums. Juicy, yet tight from the get go with plenty of life through the palate. Full of plums, spice, subtle black olives and chocolate with long fine tannins."

"Barefoot Shiraz is perfect for a large gathering or just for sipping alongside your favorite homemade meal. Deep breaths of lavender cut in front of dark berry and mocha flavors with a smooth-as-velvet vanilla finish. It really is love at first sip."
"93 Rating! Kahn's Staff. Deep garnet: there is a sappy complexity to the bouquet that is beguiling, with ripe red fruits, well-handled oak, and a hint of jasmine; the palate reveals more toasty oak notes, with fine-grained tannins and velvety texture a feature of the long finish: an elegant expression of the region."
