Earthworks Shiraz 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark, earthy and woodsy on the nose with hints of sweet cinnamon, floral herbs, candied spiced lingonberries, a little prune and a nice dusting of white pepper. Very precise on entry, this really has fine balance with polished yet firm tannins and well-integrated acidity supporting earth and cocoa-tinged dried dark fruit on the attack. The mid-palate shows a bit of floral/vegetal brightness along with a little spiced lingonberry red fruit that leads to a clean, fresh if darkly flavored finish that ends with a touch of caramel and some peppery spice notes. Nicely done, a bit chunky fruit but nicely supported. 87pts

A lovely Shiraz. It was good for the price when I got it but at $40, there are other excellent choices.

Not a fruit bomb but a very smooth shiraz with a fruit forward taste.
