This is an absolutely fabulous red. I have only been drinking shiraz for a short while, being mainly a sauvignon blanc drinker. My husband and I went on a tasting to Atze where we sampled many wines,this being the last tasting. It was worth the wait. Absolutely beautiful drop that was a must to take home. Was saving it for our anniversary but couldn't help ourselves and ended up drinking it early. So of course bought another. Maybe this one will last for a few more months. We will see.
