Huntington Estate Shiraz 2011
Tomatoes; pizza sauce like. Handfuls of dark berries and dry Mediterranean herbs. Even a canned cherry syrup like trait bobbed up. Tempered oak.
Firm robust tannins. Crunchy. Firm acidity too which grabs hold and takes the stage. There's obvious aging potential here. Massively drying and puckering tannin. Some mid plate warmth conceals the fruit a little too much for my liking. One of those wines that needs food to temper it.
