Dark, almost black, maroon red. Earthy bouquet showing early.
Slight acid, medium berry fruit, with a slightly dry tart finish.
Think this one needs to breathe a bit more....
Going excellent with a non chilli butter chicken, the acid level is perfect for that. The bouquet never really showed much of anything more, and I'd really like more fruit from a McLaren Vale shiraz. If you like Cab Savs you'd probably like this one.
Bought this for $17 and I'd say priced about right at that. But having said that, I'd like to see how it is in 5 years, too much acid and tannin for me right now.
PS. Finally bit the bullet, on Twitter now.
