Tasting – Fox Creek Shiraz


Name: 2012 Shiraz
Producer: Fox Creek
Region: McLaren Valley
Country: Australia
Vintage: 2012
Price: $9.95
Wine Review: “Bright purple. Exotic, expansive aromas of black and blue fruit preserves, vanilla and cola, along with a peppery overtone and a hint of violet pastille. Broad, fleshy, appealingly sweet boysenberry and cherry liqueur flavors show excellent depth and a seamless texture. Finishes juicy and long, with building spiciness, an echo of blue fruit and round tannins.”
My Review: Dark red in color, medium bodied.  Aromas of red fruits, particularly cherry and raspberry.  Tart on the palate, with notes of cherry and red raspberry.
