Review: *** $ Four Sisters Shiraz, Central Victoria, Australia, 2012 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Four Sisters Shiraz.

Original tasting and review : This is Four Sisters Shiraz, Central Victoria, Australia, 2012, finished at 13.5% alcohol and first sampled two years from vintage date, in September, 2014.

In the glass: Deep magenta, opaque from a half inch in.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows bright fruit, fragrant but somewhat generic.  From the aroma, seems like this will be bright and flavorful.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact carrying more layers of fragrance and flavors than anticipated.  This merges violet plus hints of cocoa plus bright ripe blackberries.  Finish lifts with some bright acids even as it settles with a cocoa/milk chocolate base.

In summary: Overall, rates an easy three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, netting a best value at the price point.
