Innocent Bystander 2005 South Eastern Australia Shiraz - Viognier

Nearly opaque ruby color, not a bit cloudy like the Zonte's Footstep 2004 Langhorne Creek Shiraz Viognier.

Plum smell, do I smell (and taste) apricot or do I expect to because it says 3% Viognier on the label? Some oak, in good balance with the fruit.

Spicy oak in the plum flavor, a bit raisiny, fruit nicely matched with tart acid.

The next day maybe the smell of oak is a bit more forward, tangy fruit still the primary flavor.

$14.99 seems like a very reasonable price for this, I can see paying that again.
