MITOLO G.A.M. McLaren Vale 2006 Shiraz

MITOLO G.A.M. McLaren Vale 2006 Shiraz, $33.14-$38.99, 93 points, is named G.A.M. after each of the Mitolo children's first names.
This Shiraz is delicious, very drinkable, yet has a balanced complexity that affords a conscious tasting experience.
The color is black, and Burgundy toward the rim with a sliver of transparency.
The aroma is a powerful combination of sweet cooking spice on a bed of roses-very nice.
This is a big juicy Shiraz with a medium plus body carrying plenty of dark fruits, boysenberry, blackberry, and hints of pomegranate with rich grape flavors.
The finish is long and strong with white and black pepper.
You might want to decant this wine.
The 14.5% alcohol is well integrated and unnoticeable. 
QPR is very good with this wine, and I'll be looking forward to more recent vintages.
