Peter Lehmann Barossa Shiraz 2002 Wine Review (NW)

Deep, dark color
Rich, fragrant nose of black cherry, currant, and sweet spice
Smooth and round on the palate
Silky finish, with berries and chocolate

I have a few bottles of this in the cellar and decided to remind myself how good it is. For $15 or so, this might be the best Shiraz on the market. If you're tired of all the wines that taste the same from Australia in the $10 price category, spend a few extra bucks and you'll be rewarded. This is a really rich and round wine, with lots of flavor. It goes down smoothly, and rewards you with a nice finish. Raise a glass!
