Loaded with chocolate and dark fruit goodness, this Shiraz will age gracefully with ease.
The mouth is coated generously, the acid structure indicating a long life ahead too. Wood and baking type spices add further levels of complexity, though the cedary oak does protrude more than I had hoped. It settled in ensuing days - and that's when it was drinking its best.
It's easy to warm to in the end - cold nights, hearty meals and friends... You get the picture.
Give a year or two for best drinking but will cellar long term.
91/100 - Very good.
