Fullsome shiraz

The Old Faithful Café Block Shiraz 2012, McLaren Vale, AUD $60

With its chocolate, mocha, dark fruit and earthy undergrowth aromas this velvety, full-bodied shiraz is showing the benefit of a little bottle age. The palate is ample and soft, generous and round, with abundant ripe tannins in balance. (Diam)
