3 Rings Shiraz

Syrah / Shiraz

750 ML

$19.99

Product Description

The 2008 Shiraz may be considered one of the best ever vintages of the five 3 Rings Shiraz vintages produced. The wine, deep red with a deep garnet hue, is full-bodied, showing lifted black currants, ripe plum, mint, caraway seeds and integrated oak on the nose. The palate is a labyrinth of ripe plums, black cherries, dark chocolate and ground coffee, with rustic overtones of cigar box and leather. The fruity complexity is finished with seamlessly layered tannic structure that is balanced with natural defining acids. This wine will drink well for more than ten years.
