Barossa Boy Wines Double Trouble Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Double trouble indeed. These two scally-wags, the kings of the region have been throwing their weight around for some time now.

Deep, earthen, fudgey aromatics ooze their way out of the glass. It's almost like you can sense the muddy, fudgey mass that sloshes its way around. 

Slick and nigh silken, there's a fair throw of fruit and spice on the palate, black pepper in particular towards the final third. A liberal spread of mintiness makes itself known too, just right at the junction of the long finish. Good juice. 91
