If you just read my previous post, you will know that I bought this locally at a promotion price of $24 for three bottles, regularly $13 per. With that in mind, this is actually a much better wine than the 2011 Shiraz blend. Staying with the single varietal, I found better fruit, a more precise nose and much better tannins. Albeit younger, this wine was more developed and had a better structure. Red berries and vanilla were the predominant flavors, a good acidity and firm tannins rounded out the palate. We drank this after lunch, but it would be good with pasta, perhaps some grilled steak. Not overly exciting , but for the special price a repeat buy. 3 stars and 86 points.
