Nick Faldo Selection Shiraz (2003)

Nick Faldo Shiraz 2003This Faldo Selection Shiraz is from the Coonawarra region of South Australia. This deep-violet colored shiraz has pleasant hints of pepper and licorice on the palate. An oak and blackberry taste contribute to the complexity of this ‘gets-my-attention ‘wine. The finish is especially noteworthy — lengthy with black pepper as well as modest tannins. We paid $17 for this wine at A & L wine castle in Ann Arbor. The owner suggested this because it is a big red, which he knows we like. I think it is quite delicious — and, as the wine breathes, I note big, big fruit — plums, I think. It’s lovely and it tastes good after a long day working the back yard!
