Brown Brothers 'Patricia' Shiraz 2009 Heathcote 14.5%
A familiar complex bouquet of mature Shiraz fruits - sweet raspberry and brown spices, some violet and red velvet florals and a big smokey oak overture; medium++ complexity. On the palate - a big fruity, oakey, familiar and enjoyable distraction. what I like about this wine is that it is not trying to be a block buster - rather it has moderate power with torque; medium acidity, medium+ tannins; a fruit core that reflects the nose and a longish finish. Balanced, well made and very enjoyable.
