Leeuwin Estate Siblings Margaret River Shiraz, 2017

Of the three wines tasted at the American Wine Society tasting, this was my clear favorite. From the Margaret River area of West Australia, it is from a cooler climate and apparently a different soil structure.

Deep and dark but a bit lighter than the Torbreck. Boysenberries, dark cherries, minerals and violets. Lighter in body than the Torbreck but plenty of strength and structure. Red currants, cinnamon, coffee and black pepper. Good acidity, exciting finish. At $18 to $20, I consider this a great value.
