Stockman's Ridge Rider Shiraz 2014

The press release accompanying the wine is glowing with praise - a result of wine show success. It must be me coz I just don't see it.

Mulberries, blueberries, plums, bitter coffee oak slides on in. Some good aromas here. A fair hit of peppery spice rattles through. Citrusy like acidity to finish. I kept coming back to it but more questions were raised than answers given.

It's a wine which seems to lose its shape and comes across a little bitsy in some respects. I couldn't finish a glass even after several hours open in the decanter.
