Boquet: Dark fruit, dark spice.
Palate: Tanins, dark fruits and spice. Medium finish.
This has the zing that I think of, when I think of shiraz. But that tannin action doesn’t distract from the other characters of this wine.The bottle says it could be cellared for a while to tame it, but goes well now. True! I’ve been rethinking shiraz since this bottle and a bottle of Ciccone Estate’s 2002 reserve shiraz.. For $45, a local wine (ACT/NSW) this is top quality.
Four and a half BuzzMoo bottles!
