Rusden Black Guts Shiraz 2012

An interesting composition, but composed and assured it is.

Dry, dusty earth aromatics - baked in the sun, not stewed. A little sweet spice, cinnamon, with a handful of dried grass and herb thrown in for good measure.

Full of body, yet trim and light. Not unctuous, a juicy proposition - acid present, tart fruit, a little satsuma plum freshness. Good grain of tannin that adds up to that overall package.

Good perfume on the finish, herb and fruit. Oh and the name? Let's just say wait until the morning after. 93
