Original tasting and review : This is Fish Eye Shiraz, South Eastern Australia, 2013, finished at 13.5% alcohol and first sampled 2 years from vintage date, in August, 2015.
Inspired by this wine: Enjoying an "old school" day of fun with your buddies: puffing on a smoke and makin' plans.
In the glass: Dark ruby.
On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows light, shy red berries. From the aroma, seems like this will be simple and generic.
On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact richer with fruit and tannins than anticipated. Clean red berries turn to grippy tannins after a couple of seconds. Bright acid wash to clean things out at the finish.
In summary: Overall, rates two stars with a plus for liveliness on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
