Tasted with the '08 - kind of forgot i had this lingering...i was surprised that this is going strong - but overall, nothing overly complex. Deep inky purple with a little red rust - nose is dark berry and some oak notes. Palate is medium weight with some similar notes - finish is uncomplicated and a little earthy/oaky...nice enough esp given this was only 15 $ CAN at the time.
On the nose blackcurrant and fruits of the forest, herbs and leather. Substantial and chewy on the palate showing more stewed fruit, menthol and meaty flavours. Acidity is good; this dealt with bbq meat very well. Medium finish. Still going strong, good for a few more years I think. Continues to be good value.
This is a delightful chilean shiraz. We decanted it for 2-3 hours before tasting with a steak and salad dinner. The nose is wonderful with full berries and a spicy aroma. The taste is smooth and long with no harsh notes. Very nice Shiraz.
Deep ruby. Fresh, ripe, youthful red and black berry on the nose, with plenty of pepper, hints of spiciness and a floral note. The fruit on the palate is very juicy and there's plenty of structure. There's plenty of tannin, the finish is medium. A fresh, youthful, interesting wine with some time ahead.
