Chapel Hill Parson's Nose Shiraz 2011

Parson's Nose always reminds me of growing up on London's District Line and the station Parson's Green.  There you go, an insight into my youth.

Dry leaf matter, hints of wood and spice over black-fruited goodness, add a smattering of regional chocolate into the mix and now we're talking.

Chocolate through the palate, smooth and black fruited with a hint of licorice.  Dusty tannins, good persistence of flavour- if not the most refined.  Who's quibbling for $16? 88 - Good

Tasted on: Saturday 1st December, a Flower Day
Source: Sample
