Yangarra McLaren Vale Single Vineyard Shiraz 2005 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Nose of ripe blackberry, raspberry, and chocolate

Rich, smooth, and full-bodied on the palate

Plush finish with berry jam, currants, and notes of herb and spice

This is a huge, ripe wine. It has extremely ripe fruit flavors and layers or rich berries throughout.

With all wines in this ripe, opulent style, you must be ready for it. In other words, know what you're getting in to. For $20 or so, there isn't a bigger wine from McLaren Vale. Hope you're in the mood for this when you pop the cork. Raise a glass!
