Yelland & Papps Devote Greenock Shiraz 2011
A meaty type. Lots of earthy type flavours too. Buckets of plums, black fruits, mulberry, leather, some clove, dried herb and black olive. Plenty of interest.
A few days on some more floral and dry herb characters try to peek through but the meaty and black fruit characters keep it at bay. Savoury with a slight drying and chalky finish.
Grab a rib roast and wrap it in bacon and wash it down with this.
Will comfortably cellar for ten years.
Another tick for the Yelland & Papps stable.
