This is the off-year of a WS Top 100 wine, but there is nothing off about it. It is beautiful - intense, fantastic Shiraz.
The second time I tried this wine I tried an experiment I rarely try: I left a half full bottle open all night and tried it again. Wow! Not only was it not oxidized, as I feared, it was much better integrated and much better overall. Since exposure to air is a way to simulate aging, I think this wine can age well and will probably be 4 stars in a couple of years - not bad for under $20! I'm glad I still have several more bottles.
I am not a big white wine fan. About 80% of what I drink is red. But this stuff is great. It's got a more viscous mouthfeel more like red wine and you can taste so many different flavors from the 9 varieties (!!) used: citrus, floral, nuts. Great stuff, and especially at this price!
