Robert Stein The Kinnear Shiraz 2014

Smells dense and dark, a whiff of Pan juices - dark and sticky. It's an experience, on aroma alone. You sense the initial introduction will be intense. 

Lithe, silken on entry - then it hits. It's a liquid slap, one that reverberates across the palate sending waves of flavour. Tannin, fine-grained, many a suggestion of spice through it. There's nary a suggestion of fruit, shrouded and crowded as it is by the spice and oak. 

An experience, sullen for now - its best is ahead of it, for 24 hours later it started to sing. 94
