Heartland 2015 One Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon (Langhorne Creek)
Never a shy wine, this vintage is a nearly 50-50 blend of Cabernet and Shiraz. It oozes rich, raisiny fruit, coffee grounds, mocha, cracked pepper and spice notes. Things get even bigger on the palate, where silky-textured, ripe fruit and a multitude of spices are met by massive, drying tannins. For all its muscle-flexing, it lacks vibrancy, and the fruit is starting to feel a little tired already, but nevertheless, many a big red lover will be enchanted by what this wine has to offer.
