Barossa Boy Double Trouble Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
Concentrated blackberries, dried black cherries and long black coffee aromas. There is a touch of that sugared spearmint leaf lolly with nicely weighted mirrored spices of aniseed, fennel and cardamom pods. The tannins are fine like chalkboard dust with an angular quality to the shape as it moves across your palate. This feels like a nod to years of yonder. In honour of a style of wine that made an impression, or that’s what it invokes for me. The distinct Cabernet Sauvignon physique really shows through with a caress of Shiraz plushness. It’s a wine for what you think are adult conversations but are actually just the friendly banter between mates. Drink with a good lamb stew or bubbling shepherd’s pie.
