Wine Review: This opaque and dark purple Barossa Shiraz opens with a blueberry and blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well balanced, and quite smooth. The flavor profile is a mild blackberry with a hint of licorice and black currant. The finish is dry and its fine tannins are elegant and drift away nicely. This very good value Shiraz is food friendly and would pair perfectly with Theresa's meatloaf. Enjoy – Ken
