This one is very fruity, very spicy and very big.
Itâ€™s been a while since Iâ€™ve had an Australian Shiraz. I had not heard of this one, but my local wine merchant suggested that I might like this one.
On the label, it says â€œThis wine will benefit from at least 10 years cellaringâ€¦â€ They are probably right, but what fun is that? I say go ahead and drink it now!
I poured the wine into my glass. The blackberry aroma caught my attention almost as fast as the dark, almost ink-like color. I think that was my first hint that this one is a winner.
In the mouth, this wine is bright, bold and indeed young. There is the blackberry, a bit of raspberry, and a touch of plum. The finish is long, and very nice. Iâ€™ll be going back for more.
I paired it with a Capriottiâ€™s Cheese Steak, with grilled onions and hots â€“ of course. This combination is amazing!
