The 2007 Shiraz is rich and elegant. It has a dark garnet color in the glass and the legs seem to slowly stretch the length of the glass. Some Australian Shiraz's come off as heavy and one dimensional. This Shiraz is not like that, it is very smooth and complex. On the nose you will find aromas of dark berry and plums with a hint of spice. On the palate you will get a nice dose of ripe red fruit with a hint of vanilla and earth. It is well balanced and has a nice long finish. As it opened up, it became smoother and hints of dark chocolate came through. It went extremely well with our grilled steaks and asparagus. This wine is reasonably priced around $19.99 but I have seen it a little cheaper on the internet. I have been purposely avoiding Shiraz's lately due to the heavy, high alcohol tastes most produce. But this bottle is going to get me back on the Australian Shiraz train, it was just that good!
