Mr Riggs McLaren Vale Shiraz 2014

Regional, varietal. Carrying the fudge, muddy; married to dark plummy fruit, ably supported by good use of (mainly older) oak

Pretty thick, chewy wine on entry. There's a good fruit presence, tannin somewhat moderated, yet a firm persistence of flavour pervades and carries long. Some of that salt-licorice-bitterness on the back end, again regional-varietal. 

Goes alright now, better with a stint in the cellar. 91+ 

Tasted on: Thursday 7th December, a Leaf day
