$13, 5 stars, 89 points, australia, Naked Wines, shiraz, south australia
This blend of Shiraz is a medium shade of garnet in the glass with defined legs (15% ABV). The nose has pronounced aromas of black plum, black raspberry, blackberry, cinnamon and dill. The palate is dry with medium (-) acidity and very supple tannins. Medium bodied- this delicious wine has very ripe fruit flavors of plum, dark raspberry and black cherry with some licorice, pepper and cedar. The alcohol shows up on the back end with a touch of heat on the throat, which was to be expected. The finish is medium in length and I get dark red and black fruit with some oak notes. Really delightful wine that gets 89 points from me and at $13 it’s a steal worthy of 5 stars. Drink over the short term with some braised beef ribs or perhaps a roast leg of lamb. Salut….
