"Menthol/camphor, licorice, black and red fruit, hazelnuts. Medium to full bodied, fresh acidity, slight warmth from alcohol, firm chewy tannin and pretty decent length. Some dried herb on the finish. Does not have the finesse of the Cabernet based wines, nor the excitement and interest of the straight Malbec, but that’s Shiraz for you. Nevertheless, a very good wine."
