A soupy, rich shiraz, soft and a little diffuse, though it seems there’s still plenty to talk about regarding what’s in the glass (and beyond). It doesn’t feel like one of the pedigree BP shiraz releases, more high volume wine than high grade, laden with blueberry and purple plum fruit, tobacco-woody notes, lemony scents and a tangy-bitter-lemony-thin-dry finish with this nagging feel of ‘is it missing some stuffing?’ that kept me awake a little longer than needed. Sure, dark chocolate and raspberry sweetness make a mark, and there’s a general sense of lush, lactic texture for enthusiasts of the release to anchor into the familiar. Warming too, generous, yes to an extent, just that irk of breadth and missing tension. In the end, you get a reasonably satisfying, come hither red, in a way.
