2004 Woop Woop Shiraz (Southeast Australia)
88. Here's a really good, inexpensive red. Deep, saturated black ruby color. Intense, rich nose of jammy blackberries, vanilla extract, and earthy graphite. Deep flavors of creamy blackberries and pencil lead. Some ripe, well-integrated tannin in the finish. Very nicely done -- gutsy and suave. Will last and perhaps improve over the next 2-3 years. Was $8.76 at Spec's Warehouse on Smith.
