Other Reviews…
The 2004 Wilfreda, a blend of 50% Shiraz, 38% Mourvedre, and 12% Grenache aged in old French and American wood, exhibits loads of flowery, spicy, garrigue, strawberry, and cherry characteristics. Medium to full-bodied, dense, surprisingly elegant, and well-balanced, this fruity red should drink well for 5-7 years.
