2002 Turkey Flat Barossa Valley Shiraz

2002 Turkey Flat Barossa Valley Shiraz $36

This one is very fruity, very spicy and very big.

It’s been a while since I’ve had an Australian Shiraz. I had not heard of this one, but my local wine merchant suggested that I might like this one.

Holy Cow!

On the label, it says “This wine will benefit from at least 10 years cellaring…” 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. I’ll be going back for more.

I paired it with a Capriotti’s Cheese Steak, with grilled onions and hots – of course. This combination is amazing!
