Wine Review: This wine was our favorite Australian Shiraz from a recent blind tasting that we conducted. This wine finished in 3rd place. This opaque dark purple wine opens with a light plum and blueberry like bouquet with slight hints of earth. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is smooth as silk, well balanced, packed with juicy blackberry and grape flavors with a dash of black pepper. The finish is dry, has fine tannins, is lengthy, and has a nice aftertaste. The panel would pair this wine with a filet mignon from Grill 23. Enjoy - KWGTP
