Wine of the Week for May 28, 2006

Penmara Five Families Shiraz 2002 - $12.85
tyle: R1/R2

This one nicely fits between the Lean & Fruity and the Rich & Juicy categories: perfect for this long overdue backyard weather. The nose shows loads of spice, red currant and spiced crabapple, with traces of wood and cardamom. The palate is a bit reserved relative to the nose, yet is spicy and juicy with a fresh acidity and little tannin. Pretty good body and length, this is definitely a vin du porch for warm weather or one to take to a casual party. Burgers bbq chicken would be good choices. (LCBO 565929)
