Harewood Estate Shiraz Cabernet Reserve 2014

Fair whack of lumber thrown at this number. Guess that's partly what makes it a 'Reserve' right? Struggling to see through it to get to the fruit. 

It's there mind, lurking underneath, whether it will be allowed to shine through only time will tell. Rich, powerful wine, dark fruit and chocolate, heavy shake of the pepper mill. It's boozy too. 

Whilst the intent is noble, you'd have to suggest it's rather unbalanced at this stage. I'd steer clear for at least 5 and see how it's travelling then. 89+
