It's only wine but I like it

Corrected previously erroneous rating (95pts,?? Must have had too much wine...._)
Rich, ripe shiraz exhibiting lots of upfront fruit and little in the way of oak, Has some decent complexity and depth. Seems like there is a bit of sweetness in the middle palate that detracts a bit (though the wine only has 3g RS/L), but overall a very good value. Fine bbq now that the weather is turning for the better. Tasted March 2019.
