Shiraz McLaren Vale 2005
Smooth and round, with ripe plum, blackberry and dusky spice flavors that just don't quit, lingering on the open-textured finish. Not a big wine, but flavorful and graceful. Drink now through 2012. 20,000 cases made. From Australia. Wine Spectator
This wine is very much as presented. I felt some resting time (30 minutes) was needed to quiet it. Then, it had really nice early fruit, a long finish and a fairly soft & gentle middle. Truly nice to drink. Enjoyed it with spaghetti & a richly flavored, highly spiced tomato sauce. Great!
I love my job, I really do!
