2003 Hentley Farm Barossa Valley Shiraz

$22 and a screw cap warning!

I guess I better write something about this one before it is gone.

It is very dark purple and looks nice!

Smells like ripe dark fruit. They say “with plum pudding aromas” like we’d know what the heck they are talking about. Come on guys, I’m not sure that I would ever want to even think about tasting something called plum pudding. I’ll stick to banana, chocolate, vanilla and butterscotch pudding thank you very much.

Okay, so I’m not quite sure which dark fruit I smell. I don’t think it is dark cherry, perhaps a jammy blackberry and I want to say that it has a touch of gardenia in there, but that is very subtle.

It is very smooth in the mouth, almost elegant. It might store for a bit, but I don’t know that it would improve. Let’s just say drink it as soon as you get it home along with your favorite pizza, pork loin or southwestern meal.

It tastes great and I’d buy it again.
