Cupcake Shiraz, Barossa Valley, 2008

The Barossa Valley, in southern Australia is known for its rich and spicy Shiraz wines. Our Cupcake Barossa Valley Shiraz has a dark and inky garnet color with a nose of ripe plums and blackberry jam. It follows with a full palate of creamy fruit, mocha and just a touch of black pepper that lingers. It's reminiscent of a chocolate mocha and blackberry cupcake. Enjoy with spicy short ribs, Cajun catfish, or a steak au poivre. Cupcake: live deliciously. -Adam Richardson, winemaker. Alc. 14.5% by vol. Product of Australia.
