d'Arenberg Fortified Shiraz 2006

Plum liqueur, floral hints , a touch of licorice, black fruit, dark chocolate and a touch of spice. A wine of depth, of interest. Of rich, velvety texture, a crushed velour feel in the mouth.

Smooth basically, incredibly so. Violets, spice - star anise - with sweet fruit accents. Black fruit runs through the finish. The finish, whilst fine, is not fleeting. 91 - Very Good
