Thorn-Clarke Shotfire Shiraz 2008 wine review by (PB)
This Aussie Shiraz from the Barossa region is a nearly black, black cherry hue with aromas of sweet mint/eucalyptus, with Chinese 5 spice and a little tar.
Palate--hefty, bold, lovely dark black cherry fruit with baker's unsweetened chocolate, and fine tannic structure for a young wine.
I received this as a gift and a nice one it is! I served it with a grilled Porterhouse. This wine runs around the $18range and is a good example of Aussie Shiraz AKA Syrah. Raise a glass!
