Charles Cimicky Reserve Shiraz 2005
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Barossa Valley|
Inky, glass-staining ruby. An exotic bouquet of red and darker berries, gingerbread, cinnamon and floral scents; a suave vanilla quality gains power with air and carries onto the palate. Lightly chewy black raspberry and bitter cherry skin flavors combine depth with energy, with the spicy qualities repeating on the palate. A late note of dark chocolate adds richness to the long, smooth finish. I found the tannins of this wine to be invisible.
