Katnook Estate Shiraz 2012

Dense, rich, generous - you won't walk away wondering. This wine spent 18 months in French and American oak, 15% of which was new French.

Coffee and cedar oak aromas straight up before a landslide of blackberry fruit, black plums, raspberries, a chip or two of dark chocolate plus lashings of pepper. The mid palate is a landing pad of riches. Nicely layered, more time in the glass keeps peeling back another level. Looks can be deceiving too - this only weighs in at 13.5%.

An impressive Shiraz outta Cabernet country.

Drink now or will cellar long term.

Very good.
