John Duval Wines "Entity" Barossa Valley (Australia) 2010 Shiraz, $21.99-$39.99, 92 points, poured core black trending purple red toward the broad clear rim and leggy glass wall.
Aromatic toasty black fruit with flowers were bold, but hints of pomegranate and vanilla notes were subtle and complementary.
Full-bodied with good acidity, firm layered tannin, bombastic flavors of blackberries, sassafras, flowers, oak, and truffle were balanced.
Finished quite long on an accelerating spice, rosemary, anise, and a warm 14.5% alcohol.
