Fonthill 1999 Silk Shiraz Shiraz (McLaren Vale)

Editors' Choice

This McLaren Vale beauty has sturdy, ripe blackberry and plum fruit and big, chewy tannins, with both fruit and tannins lingering on the finish. Not one you'd ever call a jamball, or a fruit bomb—it's just pure, delicious, focused goodness. Aromas of anise, summer berries, earth and eucalyptus are fabulous as well—but with what you get on the palate, they just feel like a bonus.
