Saint John's Road Early Settler's Shiraz

Saint John’s Road, Early Settler’s Shiraz 2003 ($20) -- Barossa Valley, Australia. From a very strong producer of super-premium Australian wines from the region that produces great wines, such as Penfolds' "Grange". Unlike most peppery-nosed Shiraz wines, this one has an earthy, almost Rhone-like, nose with a very smooth, full-bodied flavor with a hint of blackberry (?). In the mouth it has the zest and spirit of a typical Shiraz. Very approachable and appealing. I heard another rumor that this may get discounted to a ridiculous price. If it’s true, buy as much as you can before you tell your friends! In Ohio, we don't get too many great deals. This is a steal!

[It's official! Now on sale for $12!]
