Aussie Shiraz (Edina Country Club): Pop and pour, drank a glass over about an hour. The soul of this wine is dark. It is definitely Australian, but there is an old world streak through it. There is funk on the palate and nose that blew off after about 30 minutes. Unfortunately, at that point, the wine became rather simple.
High Scoring Aussies (Edina Country Club, Edina, MN): Very dark red color with some mild bricking. Drank 1 glass over an hour. The nose is distinct with lots of brown sugar, a touch of funk, raisin, some black fruit, soy sauce and subtle savory notes. The palate has blackberry liqueur, black cherry, herbal, dry, some heat, pepper, plum, medium finish. A solid backup, but not quite up to snuff. 89 to 90pts.
