A customer of mine gave me a bottle of this fine shiraz. I was skeptical when I noticed a twist-off cap instead of a cork. However, don't let that fool you. This is a very good Shiraz. It is very smooth and, at first, i found it too sweet....but, after letting it breathe, it was just perfect. It definitely is in the category of wines that wakes up your inner cheek with a richness of almost effervescent flavor. Drink it at 68 degrees. This is totally worth the $11 it costs, trust me. Just wish it had a cork!
