Shinas Estate The Executioner

The nose suggested softness and richness, with a loamy herbal aromas that developed into dark berries and mocha.The palate showed red cherry/berry fruit and a nice hit of spice, and the best part was… it was rich but not heavy.
Varietal: Blend of Shiraz 55%, Cabernet Sauvignon 43% and Viognier 2%
