Another FirstLeaf selection, and the last from my last shipment, this wine was equally as impressive as the other five bottles drank and reviewed. Our offering today is from South Eastern Australia and is an 80/20% mix of Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon.
The wine has a very faint nose with hints of berry. Swirling the wine brings the berry flavors up. The wine has almost a deep purple tint to it.
The first sip confirms it. Sweet berries and hints of oak come together in a lush mouthfeel that leaves a lingering medium finish on the palate. As the wine reaches room temperature, the berries become more pronounced, almost like cherry but with less tartness and a touch of spice.
Overall, another solid offering from First Leaf.
