Mcguigan the Heist Shiraz 2017

Member Review by chriscage:

Relatively light in clarity, showing light rusty red tones as far as color goes.....legs are minimal but rather an oily film around the inside of the wine glass. Aromas of plum, vanilla, slight dark berries and boysenberry/strawberry.....perhaps some muted peppery spice too. Flavors of muted baking and peppery spice, tart raspberry, currant and/or cranberry, along with some vanilla subtlety.....the finish shows even signs of licorice nibs! As for mouthfeel, it is light bodied, reasonably smooth, save for the odd alcohol burst, and drinkability is good for a budget Aussie Shiraz. The heist was successful in my opinion!
