Wine Review: This very opaque dark purple colored Shiraz opens with a smoky mild blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a rich blackberry with notes of integrated smoke and oak. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins stick around for a while. This wine would pair well with a slow cooked beef brisket. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This is a rich, full bodied Shiraz which has maintained a level of elegance. It has soft and velvety grippy tannins, chocolate, liquorice and a ripe berry bouquet, with an ultra concentration of chocolate, tar, liquorice, plum and blackberry flavour. The wine is drinking well now but you can expect it to age for ten or more years.

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Hentley Farm 2006 Shiraz.
