Wynn's Coonawarra Estate Shiraz, 2003

Coonawarra is Cabernet country, but the relatively cool climate is also good for Shiraz, particularly from producers like Wynn's and Bowen Estate.

Very deep and dark but sediment is beginning to form. Nice aromas of red fruits, oak and herbs. Also some anise. On the palate, it's just beginning to shed its tannins. Thick and plummy black fruits with a moderately long finish. I don't think you could mistake this for a Syrah from the northern Rhone, but it's a very enjoyable Australian Shiraz.
