Dark and briary

Mr Riggs McLaren Vale Shiraz 2015, McLaren Vale, AUD $50

Deep, dense red. Dark and briary with tar, tobacco and blackberry aromas. Vibrant, blackberry-jube flavours with accents of dark chocolate heightened by bright, integrated acidity. A delicious, succulent, full-bodied shiraz. It will benefit from a little time in bottle to mellow, soften and integrate. (Diam)
