Ripe, full and concentrated, this wine bursts with aromas of blackberry, notes of black cherry and blueberry and an assured spiciness.
Master Vintner Shiraz makes 6 gallons of earthy, rich, velvety red wine with flavors of black fruits hints of bittersweet chocolate, plums, black cherries and blackberries that linger on to a long finish.
Serve with rich, flavorful dishes like osso buco, roast lamb, traditional Hungarian goulash, or for a purely American treat, Carolina pulled pork or Texas brisket, or for culinary adventurers, red wine braised octopus. Shiraz isn't just a meat-eating wine though: try it with Puy lentils braised with mushrooms and root vegetables for a savory, satisfying meal.
Serve slightly cool (65F) to keep the tannins firm and the fruit lush--and even if you're not doing a food pairing, try it with a piece of bittersweet chocolate. You'll be amazed at how well they go together!
