Wine & SpiritsIf you like a little volume to your shiraz without getting blasted, this wine is both generous and restrained. The texture is full and rich, the flavors of dark chocolate and black peppercorn have a little green peppercorn as well, spicy and persistent. For roast game birds with currant-studded stuffing.
