2014 Wakefield St. Andrews Shiraz, Clare Valley

An opaque dark purple in the glass, lightening to a bright crimson at the rim. Scents of black pepper and eucalyptus lace fleshy mulberry, black plum, and blackberry fruit. Velvety on the palate, it fills the mouth with thick black berry fruits, licorice, and a note of mocha. The long afterflavor is fruit-driven, picking up a piquant blueberry syrup note that goes on and on. This is a delicious wine now, and should drink well for another 15 years or longer. Try with teriyaki glazed red meats off the grill.
