Shiraz Blend

Le Mistral (USA)

Single Vineyard Monterey County Joseph's Blend 2015

More medium than I expected. The obvious notes we got were Mexican chocolate but with a peppery kick and a leather finish. Could use a few more years in the cellar. — 14 days ago

Rust en Vrede

Estate Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2008

65% Cab Sauv, 27% Shiraz, 8% Merlot Blend. Delicious blend of ripe blackberries, black currants and blueberries. This medley is followed by spices, soft anise, and white pepper. For a final finish, lush velvety tannins that linger well. — 10 days ago

Torbreck Vintners

Woodcutter's Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

Solid Shiraz from Torbeck. Some spice, dark fruit and slightly earthy a bit like a Chateauneuf du Pape. Easy drinking and good value for money. It’s great that the Aussie producers have a full spectrum of the same varietals for people to enjoy. Torbeck, Two Hands, Penfolds and Glaetzer all have great options at multiple price points. — 4 days ago

Clonakilla

Shiraz 2009

Continuing my theme of Australian cool climate Shiraz - this from the Canberra District. Considered by many to be as good as Clonakilla’s flagship Shiraz Viognier. Nose of pepper and spice with red fruits. On the palate cherry and spice with earthy mineral notes finishing with persistent fine Tannins. A very good cool climate Australian Shiraz in the mould of a Saint Joseph or Cote Rotie. NB Delectable this is Clonakilla Syrah. Not offered in your choices. — 19 days ago

Two Hands

Bella's Garden Shiraz 2015

Another trip to Bella’s Garden and I think this is the best yet. Very fragrant Shiraz with a mixed fruit nose and some softer floral notes as well as a hint of candy and burnt sugar. Palate is smooth and layered with slightly more blackcurrant and a nice long finish with a hint of sweetness. All is good in this garden. — 5 days ago

The Winner's Tank

Langhorne Creek Shiraz 2005

I loved this wine. Tasted blind against some CNPs and was the winner for me. I am told it’s in the US$30 rang which makes it a QPR gem too. — 6 days ago

La Chiripada

artist series Shiraz Reserve 2008

@Delectable Wine this is the artist series Shiraz. Was not in the database.

I've had a few wines from New Mexico, but this one is probably one of the most interesting. The nose of this wine goes all over the place. Everything from tart cherry to mint to raspberry to almost kind of a mushroom and truffle. This wine is predominantly tart black cherry on the palate. A little dash of mint, and some tobacco and a little bit of truffle on the finish. Definitely showing signs of age, but not over the hill. This was quite enjoyable, and a little bit of a head-scratcher. Not so sure if I ever would have guessed this was a Shiraz.
