Wynn's Coonawarra Estate Coonawarra Shiraz, 2004

My experience with Wynn's wines goes back several decades, and I'm still a buyer any time I see the familiar label. The Michael Shiraz and the John Riddich Cabernet now command a price that is out of my budget, but I am always happy with the quality and price of the regular bottlings.

At 10 years of age, this Shiraz seems to be at its peak and showing no signs of decline. Deep scents of blackberries,  mocha, chocolate and a hint of peppercorn. Aussie fullness on the palate with highlights of black raspberries and chocolate. My preference is for Northern Rhone Syrah, but there is nothing not to like about this style. Well balanced and long on the finish.
