Leeuwin Estate Art Series Shiraz 2012

Toasty oak, spice; mulberry, plum and blueberry - a little caramel and vanilla pudding in the mix too.

Feels pretty tight, coiled - good medium bodied texture. Fruit is bound up with the oak, pleasant enough, but it needs to throw the shackles and loosen up a little.

Works well, nicely integrated fruit/tannin/spice, just lacks a bit of wow for now. 91+

Tasted on: Monday 3rd August, a Flower day
