WTN: De Bortoli Vat 8 Shiraz 2004

Postby Bruce Hayes » Fri Dec 01, 2006 10:52 am

South Eastern Australia.

Dark purple in the glass.

Lots of herbs on the nose, spicy, black fruit.

Fairly big and rich, medium-weight, red licorice, dill, cherry and raspberry, slight note of cherry cough drops (which I usually associate with Grenache).

With time, the wine seemed to grow in proportion and structure, becoming richer and the fruit becoming blacker and fleshier: all black cherry and plums.

Purchased for $15 (Canadian).
