Heritage Shiraz 2006, Williamson Wines, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, California, USA.

Williamson Wines Heritage Shiraz 2006
Dark ruby core, bordering purplish red with a cherry rim. Extremely perfumy with strong aromas of ripe blueberries, black cherries and a note of cream amidst notes of pronounced vanilla, licorice and cedar. Tannins are ripe and well integrated with the fruit profile, medium (+) acidity and a moderate finish. Overall, I would say it’s quite a typical but refined new world Shiraz – big, robust and powerful, with an elegance that left me yearning for just one more breath of its berry-buttery-vanilla goodness in the empty wine glass.
