94 Points – James Halliday
Legendary Victorian winemaker, the late Don Lewis, teamed up with Narelle King to create Tar & Roses. Their rich and fruit driven Heathcote Shiraz has quickly become a favorite of many Shiraz lovers!
Deep crimson color. Intense black cherry aromas coupled with lifted raspberry notes, a compote of summer berries. Supported by hints of vanilla, chocolate & earthy complexity. Sweet black cherry fruit flavor with chalky cocoa / chocolatey tannin.
This, plus good acid & length makes a well balanced palate.
“Rich and ripe – schmick.” – James Halliday
