Barossa Valley Estate Shiraz 2013, Barossa Valley, Australia 

My Rating 82 Points.   

Price $14.
Deep purple in color with a short purple rim.

Nice fruity nose with black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, licorice, light vegetables, milk chocolates, smoke, pencil lead, light acetone, and black pepper.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry and tangy on the palate with plums, raspberries, pomegranates, earth, graphite, spices, peppercorn, chocolates and tobacco leaf.

Medium on the finish with light tannins and tart raspberries.

A drinkable Shiraz from Australia, but very simple and a bit tart.
Unbalanced and probably on the way out by now. It really got points for the nose rather than the palate.

Needed 3 hours to open up.

14% alcohol by volume.
