External Reviews for Shaw and Smith Shiraz
Deep garnet purple colored, the 2010 Shiraz has aromas of warm black berries, blueberry preserves and licorice with an undercurrent of cloves and menthol. Medium to full bodied, it offers taut, muscular black fruits and baking spice flavors on the palate with a solid backbone of medium level grainy tannins and lively acid, finishing long. Drink it now to 2017+.
Shaw + Smith Shiraz is a medium bodied cool-climate Shiraz, in which balance is more important than power. The 2010 has notes of blueberry and mulberry on the nose, and a palate that also shows dry spice (fennel seed), some earthy notes, and which has plenty of ripe, round tannins that are initially overwhelmed by the fruit, but which become more apparent and assertive on the finish.
