Wakefield Shiraz 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit unusual on the nose with notes of figs, mint stems, tar, pepper and leathery dried cherry fruit. This is wide open on the palate with a rich savory layer of flavors laying above a base of rather bright red fruit, red currants and wild raspberries. The flavors of herbs, leather, dried baking spices and white pepper add nice dimension here, though they tend to dominate the meaty, spicy finish. Texturally, this is spot on- bright, clear and supple, though the flavors are tending a touch too much towards the savory for me tonight. 88 pts

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

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.

Funky mushroom aromas, a bit barnyard like. Nice acidity full bodied with jammy black fruit notes in the palate. Deep dark chocolate notes as well. Delicious at this value
