2012 Mount Oakden Shiraz

Dark in color with a nice nose of black berries. On the mid pallet the wine displays some nice blueberries to match the nose backed almost immediately by firm acidity, tannins and pepper. This wine is way too young. It got better as it breathed and the fruit was far more enjoyable. If you buy this now be sure and decant it. For now I would give it an 88-89 I bet even a year would make a huge difference. Not available at the LCBO but it is locally carried by Lifford for $16.95 a bottle in cases of 12.
