The Lackey Shiraz 2018

Dark in color with a earthy, oaky nose straight out of the bottle. On the mid palate the wine displays at first some fruit forward black berry notes, not to the extreme of blueberries … On the medium length finish the wine displays some firm vibrant acidity, and strong peppery notes. The wine is definitely more of a fruit forward drink now style of wine … We paired it with a striploin and it went fine. I would give it an 87-88 … Not an outstanding shiraz but not horrible either. I won’t be running out to grab more, but then again, I must admit, my taste buds have meandered away from shirazs for a while … And yet I bought this one anyway? From the LCBO web site check stock:
