Best's Bin 0 Shiraz

The 2013 Best's Bin 0 Shiraz is a well made wine. It is very balanced, delivers a good mouthfeel, and is fresh on the palate. The fruit flavours are blackberry and eucalypt. Dry tannins lead to a firm finish. This wine will drink well for many years, as older wines have demonstrated.

The problem for me with this wine are the strong mint flavours. I do not think this is attractive in red wine. A hint of it adds complexity, but a heavy dose overwhelms everything else. Therefore the disparity in my score.

Score: 94/0
