2005 Barrel Monkeys Shiraz

1 comment

McLaren Vale, Australia / $22-$23 Retail

Don't judge this wine by its silly label. From Red Heads Studio, this big, bold, medium- to full-bodied wine presents strong aromas of dark fruit, pepper and smoke with earthy accents. On the palate, the wine bursts with intense and complex flavors of ripe blackberry and rosemary. The multi-layered wine boasts huge tannins and a high alcohol content of 16 percent. Decant it and serve it with dishes like herb-crusted rack of lamb, roast venison and other wild game. Buy it at: Swirl Wines. Drink it at: Patois, Cochon and Butcher. — Brenda Maitland
