Left Hook Round Three Shiraz 2011 (4/5)
Notes: It appears med+ red purple with good tears. On the nose it's clean offering med- intensity of black forest-fruits, violets, black peppers. Quite cool and restrained at the moment but with a good sense of place. Some dark chocolate notes sniffing it again on the very bottom. On the palate is dry, with med/med+ acidity, med+ tannins, med+ alcohol, medium+ body. There is not a great grip on the mid palate but the tannins leave their punch on you gums (not in an unpleasant way). Med/Med+ finish. Cool and elegant rather than concentrated.
Good quality, Drink Now but will improve, High Price. Shiraz, Margaret River, Australia.
