2006 Reserve Shiraz
The Stuff: 100% reserve block Shiraz; 18 months in oak; 14.3% ABV
The Swirl: Dark plum inkiness with mild jewel tones toward the edges
The Sniff: Underwhelming nose with hints of blackberry and/or plum, moderate sprigs of clove and spice
The Sip: Grape candy licorice on the front end with green twig component on the back end. The wine still feels young and could/should be cellared for a few more years.
The Score: At $12 this is a pleasant Shiraz offering that scores a low 3.

Deep crimson in colour, medium to full bodied, noses of blueberries and subtle oak. Fair finish. Sale in Hong Kong at discounted price of HKD 112, not competitive when compares with simialr class of Shiraz Wolfblass President's Selection and d'Arenderg.
