A decent bottle of Barossa Shiraz that won’t break the bank.  Unlike many jammy wines from this region, the Yalumba was more refined, perhaps a little leaner.  Chocolate and plums on the nose translated into dark fruits and gentle tannins in the mouth.  Good balance and acidity made this an easy wine to drink.  I’m not sure it could handle a big fatty steak, but it should pair well with Veal chops or roasted chicken.  88 points and 3 stars for me…
