2016 First Drop Mother’s Milk Shiraz

Why isn’t it Friday yet?! Knockin’ back some Aussie juice to make myself feel better. Plums, blackberries, cola and Dr. Pepper notes, brown spices, leather, oak, and some dark pepper dusting on the nose. Plums and dark cherries on the palate with more of that Dr. Pepper note and dried herbs. Nice acidity. Quite enjoyable!
