Straight Jacket Shiraz 2005 Wine review by (PB)
Nice garnet hue with ripe blackberry nose, fudge, and black cherry and cigar box notes.
Palate: full bodied, hot, chewy tannins extracted, pushy. Lacks character. This is a full bodied Aussie Shiraz that was on sale from $20 or so to around $8. In truth it was more of an $8 wine than $20 wine. Not worth seeking out.
