Guess I don't like sweet Shiraz, 'cuz I'm not a fan of this one. Too sweet - more like juice than wine.

(*) not bad. Jammy raspberry compote with a little residual structure from tannins. Slightly bitter tannic bite but overall sweet and only mildly cloying. Good burger or BBQ wine.

I have to disagree with... everyone. For my pallette, not at all balanced. Way. Too. Sweet. Fine for dessert but nothing else.
