Inky dark in color with a nose of blueberry and some sweetness. On the mid pallet the wine displays fruity blueberries to match the nose. Straight out of the bottle it displays some acidity but this passes quickly. The wine is one the lighter side of medium in length on the finish with some mild tannins and soft pepper. We paired it with spaghetti and meat balls and when it was enjoyed with food the tannins and pepper were almost unnoticeable. This is definitely a softer gentler shiraz. I would give it an 88 or so.
