The Colonial Estate Explorateur Shiraz 2006
|Brand||The Colonial Estate|
Wine SpectatorLush in texture, but subtle in flavor, with black olive and meat notes adding interest to the dark berry and licorice flavors, lingering with finesse on the silky finish. Drink now through 2016.
Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Explorateur Old-Vine Shiraz was blended with a dollop of Cabernet Sauvignon. Purple-colored, the nose reveals smoke, meat, scorched earth, pepper, and blueberry. Easygoing on the palate, it has a forward personality, decent depth, and savory flavors. Drink this friendly effort over the next eight years.
