William Hardy Shiraz 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Smoky and a bit simple on the nose with some stemmy notes accenting the core of cracked pepper and sweet cherry fruit. This is smooth and supple and exceptionally easy to drink. There’s enough acidity here to add some zing to the cherry and plum flavors with a hint of earth and toasty oak adding to the choir. The tannins are pointy if on a modest scale and help to add some heft in the mouth and set up the moderately long blueberry finish quite nicely. Simple, fun and fresh, this is a great party wine. 86pts
