Shirah WinesWhite Hawk, Syrah 2012 ($55): Intense with nice acidity and booming notes of blackberries, blueberries, and mild black pepper with perhaps a touch of cassia or nutmeg, some leafy tobacco, distinct notes of oak, with a long, hearty, drying tannic finish.

Shirah Wines, Luna Matta, Aglianico 2013 ($65): A wonderfully balanced wine  displaying lovely dried red fruit, licorice and mint aromas leading into supple black plum, strawberry, fig, dark chocolate, leather and exotic spice flavors, in a medium frame and a poised lengthy finish.
