Tasting- Crane Lake Shiraz


Name: Crane Lake Shiraz

Variety: Shiraz

Region: California

Country: USA

Year: 2013

Price: $6

Shop Notes: Beautiful ruby appearance, with blackberry and pepper notes. Tannins and fruit marry well for a soft finish. This wine pairs well with sharp cheddar cheese and hazelnuts. Also try it along with roast lamb at Easter time, veal marsala, or grilled salmon.

My Notes: I thought the nose on this wine was very berry-type and maybe with some spices. I though the body left the palate a bit dry but the berry notes came out successfully enough.

I did not have this with food.
