Tasting Notes:
Many would say the stalwart Pendold's and a favorite of the FatGuys. 
This is a big, bold, bodacious Shiraz crafted with old world style.  Ruby in color with a nose of leather, cherry, currant and spice.  In the mouth one can distinguish between the multiple layers and distinct flavors. 
A complex wine that is easy to enjoy because of all the upfront fruit and surprising undertones experienced with each taste.  Bright acidity but well balance and a long explosive finish.  Enjoyable today or will continue to mature with age.
