It's only wine but I like it

Not a strapping Barossa, with super high alcohol, residual sugar overripe fruit. No, tis is more restrained and balanced than many Barossa's, with solid fruit and balanced acidity. Not over the top. Hints of herbs mixed in a well. More CdR than Barossa and for that, I am grateful. Very nicely done, a super deal on sale @ $15.95. Tasted Oct 2016.
