So far my favorite Shiraz
Fabulous wine, with or without food. STRONG fruit nose to start, then mellows out substantially. Still very young, fairly strong tannins until it has been open for a while. I tried it earlier and reordered; excellent value.
This wasn't the traditional Shiraz I am used to in a good way. It's very robust and hearty. My gold standard is a 2005 Yangarra Shiraz and this bottle got a high rating (92) so I really wanted to try it. It's delicious with deep berry flavors. Not as good as the Yangarra but everyone's pallat is different! I recommend!
