Cockfighter's Ghost 2016 Single Vineyard Shiraz (McLaren Vale)

Despite being from one of the coolest subregions in McLaren Vale, Blewitt Springs, this is a high octane Shiraz. It opens with vibrant aromas of red and black berries, peppery, savory spice and undertones of graphite and licorice. There's a fair amount of oak influence visible. The tannins on the full-bodied palate are angular and pinching in a way that feels a little disjointed. There's some alcohol heat, too. Nevertheless, big red lovers will find charm amidst the power.
