The 2004 Annie's Lane Shiraz is dark, plummy red in color. Aromas of spice, pepper
and dark berry fruit characterise the lifted nose. The palate has subtle integrated oak
and silky tannins, creating a luscious mouthfeel to support the spicy cherry and
blackberry fruit flavors.
Food pairings: Beef Wellington with glazed winter vegetables
Cellaring: Enjoy now or cellar for 5 to 7 years.
"This is an outstanding value."
-International Wine Cellar
"...this bargain-priced beauty is more about displaying the Clare Valley terroir than simple fruit or oak, unusual in this price range..."
"For smoky, grilled meats, pizzas and veggies, I love the spicy richness of the Annie's Lane McLaren Vale Shiraz from Australia—it's perfect for a barbecue crowd."
"What I like best about it is that it's not overripe, so it maintains enough acidity to make it a good food wine in a category where many similar wines are not."
-San Francisco Chronicle
