Food Pairings for Henry's Drive Shiraz Padthaway Reserve
Unique wine! Smells of dates and spice cake. Full bodied, lucsious tastes of morels, blackberries, velvety strawberries. So different from typical shiraz's. Balanced, nice finish. A steal at $30! This would be great with lamb shanks.
External Reviews for Henry's Drive Shiraz Padthaway Reserve
Round, supple and generous, with its firmly packed blackberry, dark plum, pepper and spicy oak flavors. Has impressive depth and beautifully polished textures, and the flavors last and last. Drink through 2011.
Full ruby. Sweet aromas of black raspberry, cassis and licorice. Supple, suave and concentrated; spicy, rich flavors of cassis, licorice and bitter chocolate are given clarity by nicely integrated acids. A minty nuance adds complexity. Quite lush and pliant. Finishes long and generous, with smooth, ripe tannins.
Big, muscular style has ultra ripe cherry and dusky spice flavors, finishing with flavors of rare meat and pepper. A brawny wine thatrsquo;s also a bit hot. Best after 2007.
Big, muscular style has ultraripe cherry and dusky spice flavors, finishing with flavors of rare meat and pepper. A brawny wine... Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2003 Henry's Drive Shiraz Reserve 750ml
The 2003 Shiraz is a full-bodied, opulently-styled red that smells of crandegrave;me de cassis and blackberry liqueur intermixed with smoky meats, espresso roast, jammy black fruits, licorice, earth, and toasty new oak. It should evolve nicely for a decade or more.
Supple, rich and ripe, with a distinctively charry, peppery edge to the cushiony-soft black cherry, plum and cooked-rhubarb flavors, all of which swirl attractively through the finish. Tannins are beautifully integrated. Drink through 2009.
Ripe and generous, explosive with its blackberry, plum and chocolaty oak aromas and flavors, which persist on the finely tuned finish. Drink now through 2005.
