This is a good wine, but not a great wine. I feel it lacks character. We let this bottle linger for a few days before finishing it, which says something. I feel like you pay a lot for the "Look at me, I bought Grey Label" effect for a dinner with friends. This Shiraz should be closer to the $20 mark.
