Oxford Landing 2005 South Australia GSM Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre

Dark clear garnet, tending towards purple.

Smell of leather, raspberry, black cherry, oak.

Tastes of blackberry, plum, black cherry, a bit of refreshing bitterness at the end.

The next day still very nice.

Think of it, perhaps, as an Australian interpretation of Cotes du Rhone. A juicy bowl of fruit.

I think it's a pretty fair bargain for $13.99 and can imagine buying it again, but there are a lot of nice $14 bottles.
