No.6

Tough Mudder 2007 No.6 Shiraz Cabernet

Black currants with earth and spice on the nose. Dark plum jam and roasted spices. Complex characters coming through with age, tobacco and cedary oak. 

Great structure and balance on the palate. Upfront dark fruits are matched with grainy tannins and a fresh acidity leaving a lingering finish. Typical Langhorne Creek eucalyptol/mint is evident throughout.

This wine tastes much younger than it is! It’s an old school claret style but really showing some lovely complexity.
