Shoofly Shiraz 2005
The 2005 Shiraz expresses oodles of spicy dark berry fruits, plums, cassis and earthy mint. On the palate, its a succulent thunderbolt of pure Shiraz, right down to the last gulp. Made with structure and grip, the vibrant, juicy length lingers with a clean have another glass finish. Drink now or hide in the cellar for 3 years.
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.
Editorial Reviews for Shoofly Shiraz
This offers up lovely tones of boysenberry and blueberry with just the subtlest roasted edge that contributes to a bit of a jammy quality but the vanilla tones and a honied floral character offer some complexity. With a big sweet entry that promises more than it delivers on the ponderous mid-palate, this offers deep fruit but no finesse and the alcohol sticks out a bit. A bit obvious. 84pts
Has the slightly yellow look of an older wine. Tastes a little gamey to me, but not unpleasant. Enjoyable and just complex enough for me to enjoy it.
This aptly named wine smells of insect repellant and pestilence. Points for being interesting, but it didn't blow any of my whistles. Very alcoholic and a little fruity.
