2006 Nugan Estate SHIRAZ (Riverina, Australia)

This was a beautifully balanced wine. Not as jammy and massive as some Aussie Shirazes.

Deep, vibrant color. Sweet and ripe nose of raspberries, blackberries, and smoky balsa wood. Soft and sensual texture in the mouth, with medium-full body and lots of pure fruit. Long, rich finish. A great buy at about $11 and change at Spec's on Richmond. 90.
