The Black Chook nv South-eastern Australia Sparkling Shiraz

Dark red / purple color with a vigorous purple head.

Black cherry smell with a big whiff of oak.

Bitter splintery mouthful of oaky flavor of black cherry, plum, sweet fruit.

A fun bottle for $16.99, but suffers from aggressive unbalanced use of raw-tasting new oak, would be better with that toned down a bit.
