The 2012 - 19 Crimes Shiraz Durif has appealing aromas of sour cherry and red currant on the nose and the palate, followed by black cherry. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine; with good, forward acidity, refined tannins and a medium finish. This is a food friendly wine, drink now and for the next few years (screw cap enclosure). My impression: NICE, 88 pts. Tasted in Feb/15 at 'Shiraz Week at iYellow Wine Cave' http://grapeselections.com/grapeselections/wine-reviews/.
