Peter Lehmann Shiraz 2005 wine review by (PB)
This wine presents with a youthful purple hue and a big plummy bouquet and loads of blackberry fruit with black licorice fragrance.
Palate: It's a big juicy dark fruit bomb with ample fruit flavors and a nice texture with plush tannins and enough structure to carry this wine for quite a few more years.
Speaking of which--the label says it should hold for 5 years. News flash: this wine will hold for another 5 years more than likely.
I paid an excellent price of $13 for this bottle and it is a nice quaff if you're in the mood for a big, palate assaulting fruit bomb. Raise a glass to be sure!
