A blend of 98% Shiraz and 2% Viognier, this richly concentrated Barossa Shiraz is indicative of the style for which Australia's top production region is famous. The wine is dark in color, rich and dense. There are ample tannins balanced by the powerful fruit. You will note the hints of blackberries, mint, and eucalyptus flavors upfront and in the finish.
Try Rubus Shiraz-Viognier with rich dishes like lamb shank, Osso bucco, beef steak or roast duck.
"Polished, supple and juicy, with red berry, black cherry, licorice and white pepper flavors, persisting nicely on the refined finish. Drink now through 2017. 2,000 cases made."

I loved the concentration and bold fruit. Nice tannins and long finish. I went out and bought 6 more bottles.
