Always a crowd-pleaser, the 2016 Jester Shiraz is a medium to full-bodied, creamy-textured beauty for drinking over the next few years. There are just enough savory/meaty notes with good complexity and hints of mint to keep the plush blackberry fruit interesting from nose to finish.
This wine shows plenty of dark berry, chocolate and licorice aromas, with a streak of vanilla and dusting polish. On the palate, the fruit is ripe and a bit tangy, and tannins are firm but not overpowering. It sits a little heavy in the mouth, though, and could use more lift and less extraction.
Juicy, tangy berry flavors offer notes of cedar and spice, with touches of cola, set on a medium body. Drink now. 16,000 cases made.
