    Other Reviews.... 
    Purple-crimson; much better clarity than the Malbec; strong black berry and licorice aromas lead directly into a firm, though medium-bodied, palate; has the energy, thrust and length missing from the Malbec, yet is exceptionally elegant, reflecting its low alcohol. Is one of those rare wines which get better sip by sip (or mouthful).
    Postscript: I wrote those words before I referred back to the identical comment made about the '05 Shiraz.
