Step Rd. Blackwing Shiraz 2005 wine review by (PB)
This wine is a pretty purple, burgeoning ruby hued wine with a bouquet that is up front with black cherry, fresh cherry fruit and spicy berries to boot but in the rear there is a unique scent of APPLES. That's right; apples and yes, this is a red wine!
On the palate this wine is another fruit bomb with soft structure and very ripe dark fruit with a sweet foundation. this is a very popular style and it is well made with big flavors and drinks very easily. But that being said, it just doesn't taste distinctive; it tastes like a gazillion other new world Shirazes on the market. It finishes well, and it's a decent wine for the under $11 I paid for it. But I have to admit, the seemingly monoclonal new world fruit bombs are all beginning to taste the same. Raise a glass if sweet, dark and fruity is what you enjoy!
