GLEN ELDON DRY BORE SHIRAZ 2004
VINTAGES 54197 | 750 mL bottle
Price: $ 27.75

This wine is inky purple in colour. It has an exciting nose – plum, dark cherry, chocolate, cinnamon stick and some floral components. This is seductive stuff.  The explosion of flavours carries through to the palate where there’s an additional white pepper component. Well balanced, beautiful mouthfeel. This is right on the right side of too much fruit for me, really hedonistic. I’m digging it a bunch. 27bones CDN, this is 90pts for my palate.  Awesome stuff for the dollar.  I bought two more for the cellar, I’m going to enjoy this one next year, and a couple of years later.
