Mild, easy drinker. Light on the palate, medium tannin, very dry. Not very big on the fruit. Tobacco and plum.

Roasted red plums, dried cranberries, black currants. Oodles of fruit and mild tannins, especially for Italian varieties. Medium finish. Personally like it a touched chilled given its slightly noticeable alcohol at real room temp.

It must be the season. It’s time for another cracking Shiraz. Again a very fruit forward style. This time with lashings of mulberry and raspberry predominating on the palate. Lacking a little mid-palate complexity, even after a 3 hour decant. Just hints of dark chocolate bitterness and black olive before the fine but drying tannins take over, driving a long finish. Not too dissimilar in style to Hannah’s Swing, just not as well composed. Nice, but not outstanding.

The flavor at the start is quiet and well balanced. The after taste is a little too strong and lacks the subtleness of the start. Smells of currants and some citrus. Decent bottle for the cost $17
