Pikes Los Compañeros Shiraz Tempranillo 2014

A great drink for a couple of flat mates or Los Compañeros (the Companions) chatting away watching some reality TV perhaps. Easy drinking deluxe.

Juicy purple purple fruit makes a neat entry filling the mid palate with joy. Shiraz (90%) frames the mouth and runs a neat line of acid and spice. There's a touch of chocolate in there too. Soft and playful, there's lots of pizza and pasta night appeal here. Great buying for the money, I see big pours in its future.

Drink now to five years.
