Rex-Goliath Shiraz (2015)

Sometimes I just can’t pass up a sale.  This already cheap bottle of red was on sale not too long ago for a bargain basement price.   I hadn’t tried the Rex-Goliath Shiraz in about 5 years, so I thought I’d give it a go.

Vineyard:  Rex-Goliath
Varietal:  Shiraz
Vintage:  NV
Appellation:  California
Price:  $6.49

Notes:  This dark, opaque purplish wine had an interesting if fairly gentle bouquet including what seemed like butterscotch, minerals, dark fruit and wood.  Acidity was pretty high and alcohol was 13.5%.  Weight on the tongue was on the light side of medium.  I found flavors of plum, pepper, oak, a hint of raisin and a lingering dark currant on the finish.  It was a little bitter for me, so I didn’t think it a very good wine for sipping on it’s own.
