Purple-black in color. A potent plume of dark fruits, black tea and roast beets. Blood, violets, iron and bitumen. Plums and coal smoke. Monolithic in its band of fruit and tannin. Exceptionally rich and full, with phenomenal depth and drive. My hunch was that the most ancient grape on the planet, Saperavi, would make for a unique union with McLaren Vale's prized Shiraz. The elixir was covertly blended and like other 'black operations' a Pandora's box of flavour was opened. A wine for FBI, CIA and civilians. Seek & embrace the unusual. 'Black Ops' Shiraz Saperavi is the only blend of this type in the world and it will not disappoint! Team it up with a classic Reuben Sandwich; perhaps swap out the corned beef for smoky beetroot to match the mix.

The 2020 Black Ops Shiraz Saperavi is juicy and jubey and bright purple on the nose. In the mouth, the wine is exactly that-with an infusion of additional tannin from the Saperavi. This is concentrated and teeth-staining-some froth on this combination, and if so, then this wine is for you. The profusion of fruit is impressive.
