2010 Pyrenees Ridge Red Shiraz mini review

Inky dark in color with a rose of black berries. On the mid pallet the wine displays some lovely rich black berries. A nice fruit forward flavor. On the medium length finish the wine displays some firm acidity. I would give the wine an 88 or so.

From the LCBO web site (For a different year)

Tasting Note
Strong crimson-purple; a complex and powerful mainframe for this deeply flavoured shiraz, with its blackberry, plum cake, spice and licorice palate. Still very youthful and needs a minimum of five years to settle down, but will do so as the toasty oak integrates. Drink by 2024. Score – 93. (James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au, Aug. 2011)
