2015 Bishop Shiraz (mini review)

Inky dark in color with a nice black berry nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with lots of lovely black berries coming through. On the medium length finish the wine displays some smooth tannins and acidity. This is an easy sipping/drinking Shiraz with little to no pepper on the finish. It should be quit food friendly. I would give it an 88 or so. Now while I liked it, I then saw the price and got sticker shock …
