2019 3 Rings Barossa Valley Shiraz
Red Wine from Barossa Valley, Australia
Full, even, dark ruby-red in color, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is elegantly preserved, but well- concentrated, the fruit expression is a little reserved initially, unfolding vibrant dark raspberries and blackberries, lifted by subtle, fragrant spice notes and aromatic black pepper, licorice and cedar. On the palate, it is full-bodied, well concentrated, and sweetly rich. Succulent flavors of dark raspberries and blackberries are melded with layers of black pepper, licorice and Asian spices. Fine-grained, flowery tannins provide strong grip and structure, and the palate flows with acid vibrancy and energy, carrying to a luscious and lingering finish of black fruits and spices.
