Deep crimson with violet hues. Intense aromas of red and blue fruits, ripe plums and morello cherries are lifted by notes of exotic florals and stone-fruits, with mocha and bitter chocolate nuances. The palate shows rich, lush and juicy wild berry and satsuma plum flavours, with a hint of anise and kirsch; velvety, fine-grained tannins provide texture and length for a beautifully svelte finish.

Wine AdvocateAlso a blend of Shiraz, Grenache, Viognier and Mourvedre, the 2012 Henry's Seven has a deep garnet-purple color and opens with a wonderfully perfumed nose of violets and lavender over a core of black raspberries, black cherries and red currants plus some spice cake and cinnamon toast nuances. Medium to full-bodied and bursting with gorgeous, mouth-filling red berry flavors, it has crisp acid and a low to medium level of soft tannins before finishing long. Very approachable now, it should keep to 2019+.
