Drinking Tonight: Berton Black Shiraz

A 2011 Barossa Shiraz, $10 from Trader Joe’s – recommended by one of my old buddies there.

Color: Purple-red throughout, not too dark.

Aroma: A little closed – blackberry fruit, then the eucalyptus comes on.  Not too spicy or oaky on the nose.

Taste: This has a lot of extraction – almost syrupy fruit up front, then more of the eucalyptus, then black pepper spice and some earthiness on the finish. Thick textured throughout.

A very good deal for $10.
