2014 Yalumba Steeple Vineyard Shiraz

Barossa Valley, South Australia, AUSTRALIA
$69. 99 Bottle
$839.88 Dozen
ABV: 13.5%
Closure: Cork

Part of Yalumba's Distinguished Sites program, the 2014 Steeple Vineyard Shiraz comes from a Light Pass vineyard planted in 1919. After 15 months in 35% new French oak barriques, it's understandably smoky, toasty and cedary. Those elements are balanced on the medium to full-bodied palate by espresso and boysenberry notes. Concentrated and supple, it's ready to drink now and should drink well for at least a decade.
