Tait 2008 Basket Pressed Very deep garnet
colored with a touch of brick, the 2008 Basket Pressed Shiraz offers a complex nose of mulberries,
blackberry preserves and dried plums over hints of baking spices, Ceylon tea, tobacco and sandalwood.
Very full bodied, big and powerful in the mouth, it offers generous layers of warm berry, dried fruit
and baking spice layers supported by refreshing acidity and a medium to firm level of rounded tannins.
The finish is long, spicy and just a little warm. Drink this one now to 2018
