yes, i know. another shiraz. i promise to lay off the stuff for a bit and throw in a few other reds. i couldn't quite figure out if i liked this one or not when i first opened it. the nose was certainly inviting. typical of an australian shiraz, it had notes of cedar, pepper and blackberry. the taste was a little a bit of a disappointment. not the nice long finish you might expect. fruity taste of blackberry up front with a bit of the spicy, peppery zing you would expect from a shiraz, but then it just disappears. no long finish. no full chewy mouth feel. sells for about $10-12. but i would pass on this one in the future.
