Thorn-Clark Terra Barossa Shiraz, 2009

This Barossa Shiraz was served with the main course (coriander braised short ribs, demi reduction) at a Tasters' Guild wine dinner at La Cantina in Paw Paw, MI. It was much better than I expected--good enough to prompt a purchase a couple of days later.

Beautiful nose: plums, black olives, flowers. Very full bodied, as you would expect from a Barossa Shiraz but not overly ripe and it carries its 14% alcohol well. Very smooth, not too tannic with a ripe, spicy finish. Comes in a full liter bottle.
