back down under to australia for this beauty of a shiraz. black cherry and black raspberry nose, with hints of graphite and smoke. the flavor was cherry and strawberry with spicy pepper notes intermingled throughout. very well balanced tannins and flavors and a beautiful long finish. i was very impressed with this wine which will go well with grilled meats or even pasta dishes. sells for about $17. buy two bottles to lay one down for a year and be impressed all over again.
