This is a rich, old school Barossa Shiraz. Plump fruit in the form of currents and blueberries are backed by notes of olive brine, earthy spice, charred veg and a furniture polish-and-vanilla-oak character. The palate is dense but not overtly syrupy or muscular. There's quite a bit of high gloss oak showing here but plenty of fruit and spice, too. This is well-groomed but wouldn't it be nice if a few freckles showed through all the makeup? Christina Pickard

What Is Blind Tasting?

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
