Evans & Tate Redbrook Shiraz 2010
Chocolate and sour cherry characters reigned supreme with a delicious spice kick. The acid which sat on my teeth which was noticeable and raised the eyeborws. Good texture but needed some polish. A drying finish and a cheeky warmth wrapped it up.
The wine didn't budge on day two and held its form well. Perhaps some further cellaring will help settle this wine, I'm thinking 3-5 years. Keep in mind it already has three years on it.
Have with a hearty winter casserole type of meal or with piece of dark chocolate wedged in the side of your mouth.
Not something I would buy for now but I'd be interested to see where it ends up in a few years.
