Wine Review: I am a big fan of Rolf’s Heysen. This year’s vintage is almost pitch black in color. It opens with a very attractive blackberry bouquet with notes of blueberry and cranberry mixed in. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, ultra smooth, and very well balanced. The flavor profile is a delicious juicy blackberry and blueberry blend with a dash of nutmeg mixed in. The finish is dry and its ultra fine tannins fade away quite nicely over time. The more I drank this wine, the more I liked it. I would serve this very refined Barossa Shiraz with a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

"Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It’s culture. It’s the essence of civilization and the art of living."
