Step Rd Shiraz Blackwing 2008

Member Review by vin0vin0:

Nice, spicy, Australian Shiraz with lots of black fruit and a really nice finish. Really good with anything off the grill.

WineLibrary.tv commented that this was a solid everyday wine. Especially as a replacement to Yellowtail et. al.

I am usually an Aussie Shiraz fan. This bottle has a rating of WA90 so I was deeply disappointed. I did not think this had good balance at all. Highly tannic and sharp, esp for a shiraz.

Decanted 30 minutes. Nose of spicy pepper, blackberry and a touch of alcohol heat. Tastes of big fruit: blackberry and cherry, with tobacco and tannins. Finish is dry, with some heat and sweet berry flavors that circle the tongue. Tannins dry the mouth quite a bit, leading me to believe this could use some more time. Nice Shiraz however.

A super, thick fruit shake. Jammy on the frontend, a little smoky on the finish. Had the '05.

From a fabulous vintage in South Australia, Step Rds 2005 Shiraz Langhorne Creek reveals a full-bodied opulence, wonderfully pure, rich, black fruit flavors, and amazing density, purity, and texture. It should be consumed over the next 4-5 years.
