Basedow 1996 Johannes Shiraz (Barossa Valley)

The overall impression here is candied—from molasses aromas to confected grape flavors, to a finish that pops with bright fruit, but leaves a gelatinous, manufactured fruit flavor in the throat. Saving graces here are a smooth mouthfeel, and dark earth flavors that partially mask the other flavors.
