The 2007 Parson's Flat is a fragrant wine showing cherry and brambly fruit on the nose, mixed with Asian spices, dried herbs and background fennel characters. The palate starts with ripe blackcurrant fruit and has a fleshy and round palate from the Shiraz component. The Cabernet Sauvignon infuses in the mid palate with savory, leafy and forest floor characters and the wine finishes with beautiful long and fine tannins.
"Saturated ruby. Expansive bouquet of dark berry liqueur, candied cherry, mocha, dried violet and licorice. Lush, seductively sweet black raspberry and mulberry flavors coat the palate, picking up peppery spice and smoky qualities with aeration. The finish strongly echoes the mulberry and vanilla notes and clings tenaciously. Shows surprising vivacity for a rich, deeply fruity wine. The smooth finish shows no apparent tannins. I'd drink this fruit bomb now."

I am not a Shiraz fan, but I love the picture of the parson on the label. The wine is excellent. But $46. is a bit steep on a Parson's wages.
