Burge Family Shiraz Barossa Valley Reserve Draycott 2005

Member Review by Wine Fire:

Perfumes of leather, plum, blueberry, black raspberry, licorice, pepper, mineral, toasty oak and spice mingle on the nose, rearranging over time. Plum, blackberry, black cherry, licorice and leather open on the palate, which evolves away from highlights of spice to a background of toasty oak during the first hour. Ripe fruit and strong black pepper run through sweet leathery flavors as the complex layering of tastes evolves, smoothing out after an hour supported by fine tannins and restrained alcohol, allowing savory succulent fruit to linger on a plush finish. At two hours, astringency begins to steal the finish. Hops and barley, then raisins, pungent cherry and cave minerals emerge at three hours, adding back interest.

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
