Pikes ‘Los Companeros’ Shiraz Tempranillo 2015

I'm sure Los Companeros means, "Get me a freakin pizza and quick!" Easy drinking red for lazy meal.

A 90/10 blend, there's a rush of spice and char before blue fruits roll through in cruise mode. Fractionally on the lighter side of medium bodied, there's a good grip of fruit and crunchy acidity to finish. Pizza and tomato based pasta dishes would eat this easy.

Drink now to three years.

88/100
