Excelsior Paddock Shiraz 2004 Wine Review (NW)

Fruity nose of blackberries, currants, and mocha
Juicy core
Berry and chocolate finish, round and smooth

This is a simple, fruity wine. If you like the robust flavors of dark fruit and mocha, you'll probably enjoy this wine. It's also extremely round and smooth. A lot of people are familiar with their Cabernet Sauvignon which has some similiar expressions but also an odd, plastic taste. For 2004, this Shiraz is the better of the two wines. I paid a bargain price of $7. Raise a glass!
