Yummy aromas of cola, plum pie and smoked meats start off this well-priced, stately Shiraz. And nothing that follows disappoints. The palate is full yet balanced, with spicy plum-styled fruit and enough acidity to preserve the juicy feel. The finish is smooth and just about perfect. This is neither overdone nor wimpy. In a word, it's complete. Editors' Choice. —M.S.
