Peter Lehmann Portrait 2013 Shiraz, $7.99-$18.99, 89 points, appeared a deep purple/red, with a clear wine ring, and a heavily draped glass bowl.
The aroma was fruity and flowery.
Medium to medium-plus body carried good acidity, supple and supportive tannins with raspberry, blueberry, violets, and fresh mushroom flavors.
Not as elegant as the Domaine Terlato~Chapoutier Pyrenees 2012 Shiraz, but bolder more typical of an Aussie Shiraz.
Finished fair on the trailing palate, tart pomegranate, mild spices, and a more notable 14.5% alcohol.
