Very good, could almost be mistaken for a cabernet with such a serious structure - plenty of oak and powdery tannins - a hint of fruit sweetness at the end shows the Shiraz - will probably start to become more savoury as the fruit starts to take on more secondary characters - I'll be leaving my last one for a few years to see where it ends up
The wine looks purple colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like black currant (cassis)jammy. It tastes like plum. The body is medium/full. The wine has round texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has low acidity. Excellent
this is still in good shape, as I was a little worried it might be past its time. Still lots of fruit, not what you would call refined, slightly "dirty" on the palate, but the red and black fruit favors with a little spice was worth it. most will find this a good fruit forward drink.

(D'Arenberg d'Arry's Original Shiraz Grenache (Australia)) Very dark, forward, obvious, lifted nose, but still laden with fruits. Sweet. Very richly and abundant in flavour, with dark, tarry fruit. Rather grippy. This achieves a better balance than the previous wine, there is plenty of ripe tannin and some acidity too. This will please many I think. Not quite my style though.
