2006 Flinders Run Southern Flinders Ranges Shiraz
RM 92 points: Dark garnet inky color - full bodied. Mouthful of forward chewy spicy ripe plum, blackberry, blueberry and notes of licorice coat the tongue, toasty oak and a layer of vanilla almond on the full long, pure finish. Slight heat and mineral edge is subsiding but detracts from the fruit a bit. Not quite as smooth as the 2005 vintage but delicious none-the-less.
