Winners Tank Langhorne Creek Shiraz 2014, Australia 

My Rating 85 Points.   

Price $16. 
Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Sweet nose of cherry pie, strawberries, blackberries, currants, bell peppers, earth, sage, peppermint, chocolates, alcohol, spices and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, bell peppers, cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, earth, leather, spices, peppercorn, mocha, smoke and chocolates.

Medium plus in finish with round tannins and spices.

This Nice Australian Shiraz is balanced and good by itself, or with food. Would pair nicely with BBQ Meats.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly and remove the bitterness at the ending, and add more complexity.

14.8% alcohol by volume.
