This is our second bottle of Burley Fox Shiraz 2005. But, I am tasting it as though it is my first taste. In spite of my summer cold, I can still enjoy the rich taste and full body of this delicious shiraz. The nose is a little difficult for me to decipher today but hints of cherry and spice are managing to get through my “challenged” airways. I can taste cherries and chocolate on the palate. The finish is delectable; it lingers long after I set the glass down. (Although it is 90 degrees today, I am serving leftover homemade bean soup for dinner for my sore throat [and lack of energy for cooking].) Tom picked this wine particularly for pairing with the soup. I agree; this should compliment it nicely. Is there anyone else out there suffering from a summer cold?
Tom: This Burley Fox Shiraz 2005 is very nice: tannic, mildly peppery, with tastes of cherry and hints of chocolate. More fruity than some shirazes, but not fruit bomby. Very drinkable and tasty.
