Deep black-purple in color. Intense aromas of blackcurrant, stewed plums, cherries, and chocolate. Full-bodied berry palate with a sweet long lasting finish.


"A blend of 75% Shiraz, 13% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2013 The Ball Buster Proprietary Red is set to be bottled in December. It opens to lovely notes of cassis, bay leaves, red plums and black cherries with pencil lead, cloves and baking spice accents. The palate has lovely grainy tannins, nice freshness and a long finish. Offering a lot of character at a very modest price, this vintage promises to live-up to its outstanding quality standard! Range: 89-91" -Rated 91, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Vivid purple. Heady, smoke-accented aromas of black and blue fruit preserves, incense and fruitcake, with a sexy floral topnote. Juicy dark fruit, cola and floral pastille flavors pick up a sweet note of mocha with aeration. Fleshy but focused and energetic, finishing with noteworthy power and smooth, slow-building tannins. Very suave and approachable right now." -Rated 91, Vinous
