Tyrrell's Rufus Stone, Shiraz (2006)

Heathcote, Victoria
15.5%, screwcap, non organic, around $21

Dark purple. Quite a pungent meaty nose, with elements of salami, stewed plums and some cedary notes. Impressive fruit intensity with bright red fruits and bramble on the palate. Oak in the background. Nice balance. Slightly grippy tannins at the end. Bright acidity throughout. Some leather emerged on the nose after some time in the decanter - 93.
