Description

Defiant by nature, bold in character. Always uncompromising. Witness bright red to crimson hues: heed the intense, lifted vanilla aromas balanced with riper red to dark berry fruits that rise in defiance from the glass. The vanilla aromatics carry through on the palate and compliment subtle flavors of chocolate and cedar spice. Full and round on the palate, with a distinct sweetness giving a rich and round mouthfeel. The palate finishes soft, fruity and so fresh, it should be a crime.

Vineyard

A liquid ode to bad guys everywhere. Inspired by British criminals who, beginning in 1788, were transported to Australia. Pioneers in a harsh frontier colony, they proved that good things can come from a checkered past. 19 Crimes celebrate the rules they broke and the culture they built. From a bad seed comes a bottle of truly great wine.

Felons, running roughshod over London town, were menacing good people, wreaking havoc and, caught by the scores, clogging every jail in the kingdom. A civic dilemma of colossal proportions.
Meanwhile, two oceans away, a newly claimed and virgin continent was in dire need of subjects to bring civilization to bear. Yet the voyage was endless and brutal, the rewards meager to nil.
The savagely elegant solution: Punishment by Transportation.
A list of 19 Crimes was drawn. A conviction meant a torturous journey to an unknown and unforgiving land.
Australia, thus, was born.
