Taylors Estate Shiraz 2009 with Thanks to Adam from Taylors for the sample


Day 1:
Aromas of dark plum, spice, wood.  Bouquet flows onto the palate.

A highly drinkable wine that is not jammy or confected. It's not all upfront fruit flavour or un-necessarily high in alcohol, this wine whilst lingering doesn't taste fruity throughout, the oak tannins take over carrying the flavour through to the finish.  Well structured and integrated, will progress over the next 5 years.

Day 2:
Suits a range of meat dishes but can also handle food with a bit of spice.  I had it with home-made tandoori chicken and it wasn't overpowered :)

Day 3:
Tried over three days, at it best on the 3rd. Dark cherry coming thru, dealt with the leftover tandoori with aplomb

Final analysis: Highly Recommended. Gold medal Sydney International Wine Comp. 14% Alc
