Hugh Hamilton Black Ops
The “black sheep” of his family, Hugh Hamilton is nothing if not creative. For the Black Ops he utilized his staple (and delicious) Shiraz as a base and blended with the ancient Georgian varietal Saperavi. Unlike most wine grapes Saperavi also has dark flesh (as opposed to only skins), further enhancing the dark color of the wine. Rich and (no surprise) dark fruits dominate, with some tannic grip and a whiff of tobacco.
