2005 Chateau Reynella Shiraz (cleanskin)

Postby n4sir » Mon Apr 25, 2016 8:05 pm

2005 Chateau Reynella Basket Pressed Shiraz (cleanskin), McLaren Vale (cork): Still an impressive, brooding, intimidating dark to inky crimson with a little purple. Pretty much unchanged from nearly seven years ago, inky and jubey, blackberry, plum and liquorice, a little menthol, dried herbs, soy and lifted, spicy/sweet oak well in the distance. The palate’s medium to full-weight and very dry, with tart/tarry/plummy fruit and a touch of smoky bacon/black liquorice, finishing with gum sapping tannins and some espresso and menthol. An absolute bargain when it was dumped, this should easily last another decade or two.
