Reggie’s Pick: 2015 Tait Ball Buster Shiraz, Barossa Valley $20

Yummy! That’s my first impression here. This Tait Shiraz lives up to my expectations of Aussie Shiraz; big, bold, extracted with a healthy dose of alcohol to boot! This wine has tons of black fruit (blackberry, plum) with mocha and spice along for the ride. Strong oak influence mingles with mature tannins to give this wine a big finish. I like this wine paired with smoked tri tip, but it would also be a great companion to any grilled meats and vegetables. Enjoy!
