Partisan Black Label Shiraz 2009

This is a big wine and appropriate precautions need to be taken to ensure there are no casualties - a seated position preferred with a big piece of steak at the ready!

Aromas of charred oak, dark fruits and a hint of clove. Dense flavours greet you on the palate. Blackberries bounce around with some dark plum and chocolate characters. The tannins are grainy and rough.

Overall,  I felt the wine needed a little polish to round it off.
