Cunning Plan Shiraz 2018, McLaren Vale
This is from McLaren Flat, raised in old French oak. I watched one of the fist episodes of Black Adder the other week, and always interesting / ageing to see shows filmed in the old box screen format.
Blackberry, beef jerky, a little mint and spice. It’s medium to full-bodied, savoury and quite spicy, thick with black fruit and smudgy tannin, some dried herb and a solid dry and savoury finish. You can sink your teeth into this, though it’s not hard to swallow.'
