Very, very big with amazing legs. Practically chewy. Zin and shiraz fans will both like. I agree, needs lots of air, better about 20 minutes after an unaerated pour.
Huge and jammy, I am more of a zin fan than shiraz, but this was like the best of both worlds. Had just enough pepper, but the finish was all fruit. A new favorite.
Big fan of this wine. Big flavor, lots of fruit, oak, vanilla, complex. Great for the price range I think, but I am a fan of big, bold Shiraz. If that's your game, this is a great buy at the price!
