Purchased at the very last moment to fill a mixed dozen. I was hesitant and clueless.
But Wow! What a meaty wine! A lot of blackcurrant, star anise and juicy berries. A punch on the finish with a lot of fine tannins. It feels like you’re eating, not drinking.
Not everyone will like this style, but it’s just what I look for in a shiraz.
