Tapestry Wines Regional Shiraz 2012

A limited wine list at an Italian restaurant led me to this.

Quite big and powerful with red currants, mulberries and plums busting a move. As time went on the wine displayed some savoury appeal via dried oregano.

Whilst quite smooth and filling, the one thing that just kept stealing the show was the unrelenting vanilla oak. It added some sweetness and dumbed down the fruit. An arm wrestle of sorts took place with the fruit adding value before being put in a sleeper hold and the vanilla showing its hand.

Would I buy this again, sadly no.
