Excelsior Shiraz Paddock 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This ripe, jammy Shiraz is bursting with juicy flavors of blackberry, cherry, licorice, and plum, with hints of dark chocolate and Asian spice and subtle earthy undertones. A tasty, crowd pleasing red, it consistently garners “Best Buy” accolades.

A juicy, tasty red from Robertson, South Africa. It shows loads of dark fruit on the palate with cassis and a touch of smoke on the finish. The tannins are eager to please - in fact, this wine just won't let you down in general. Friendly and approachable.
