Pikes Los Campeneros Shiraz Tempranillo 2016
Clare Valley red blend that manages to be easily delicious (much like the Tempranillo). Exuberant and bright red fruited style that doesn’t feel forced. The acid is not harsh, the alcohol moderate. Real energy to this and a black licorice fruit. Simple, fresh and well played mid weight red. Best drinking: now and for at least a few years. 17/20, 90/100. 13.5%, $19. Would I buy it? Worth a few glasses at that price.
