2010 Radford Spice Bush Shiraz

20% new French Hogsheads with some whole bunch incorporation. Matured in barrel for 30 months.

Has quite a bit of Rhone-like stink and some prominent rustic notes of tanned animal hide but there’s also plenty of upfront black and purple fruit. Spicy pepper and clove, velvet texture and fine-grained tannin. Good carry through the back-palate. It’s not a glossy or polished wine but it has a degree of charm. 88
