2012 Earthworks Shiraz

Inky dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid pallet displays some lovely rich black cherries. The fruit is definitely the star in this wine! It’s slightly jammy in texture. On the medium length finish the black cherries live on nicely backed by some nice acidity, some noticeable oak and some fine tannins. There’s a hint of pepper to the finish as well. This is more of a subtle well made shiraz than a boisterous one. I would give it an 89 or so. We paired it with a hamburger with all the fixings and it went well and held it’s own. Sadly not in the LCBO. We had it when we stopped by Mill Croft in and Spa to see the lovely fall colors!
