Teusner Avatar Grenache Mataro Shiraz 2004
A very nice example of a Barossa GMS blend, comparable to the (late 2000s) Penfolds Bin 138. Ripening quince dominates the nose and palate but there is cola to root flavor behind it. Tannins that are finer and more resolved now than in 2007. Could use another 18-24 months of cellaring before being optimal. I had with ziti and meatballs but this would go better with osso bucco or a spicy lamb shank.
