2005 McLaren Vale Shiraz
Classic McLaren Vale Shiraz, rich warm fruit on the nose with hints of spice. Big mouthfeel with blackberry and warm chocolate, finishing with a big kiss of black pepper. This wine is drinking great right now and will continue to flesh out over the next couple of months and drink really well over the next few years. This is a fairly small lot from one vineyard. The wine saw mostly 2- to 3-year-old French oak barrels, and while it picked up a kiss of oak, this wine is primarily classic jammy Shiraz. Ultimately, you are looking at $20+ quality juice.
Style: Full, Bold
