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.
