Scarce Earth Braden's Single Vineyard Shiraz 2011

Deep garnet-colored, the 2011 Scarce Earth Braden’s Shiraz is scented of black cherry preserves, warm red and black plums and menthol with hints of licorice, black pepper and asphalt. Medium to full-bodied with a good concentration of peppery and savory flavors in the mouth, everything is framed by a medium level of rounded tannins, vibrant acid and a long finish. Drink it now to 2020+.
