2014 Shiraz (IHP) Ian Henderson Peterson - Hunter
Hunter Valley, NSW
Full bodied with strong berries flavours and spices
Dark, rich and bold garnet colour with cerise/ crimson hues.
Generous, ripe and brooding. The nose shows lifted stewed fruit characters of boysenberry, dark cherry and raspberry. This is supported by spiced aromas of black pepper and vanilla with savoury, almost meaty nuances.
Full bodied, ripe, rich, generous yet soft. The upfront palate shows ripe fruit characters of black and red fruits such as blackberry, mulberry, blueberry and cherries. The mid-palate is wonderfully savoury and complex showing hints of clove, cinnamon and black pepper. The finish is firm, soft, dry and long with cashew nut oak characters.
