Warburg Estate Premium Reserve Barossa Shiraz 2009 Wine Review (NW)


Tasting notes:

Lavender, violet, and earth on the nose

Smooth and medium bodied on the palate

Chocolate covered cherries and some spice on the finish

The best way I can describe this wine is that it smells like soap. I guess that's okay sometimes, but in this case it just doesn't work. The aromas and flavors aren't integrated and the wine doesn't remind me of the Barossa Valley at all. I bought this in a mixed case and believe the price to be in the $10-15 range. Raise a glass to drinking 09's in 09 from the Southern Hemisphere- just not this one!
