The Willows Vineyard Barossa Valley Shiraz 2010 $34 ★★★★

Deeply meaty on the nose and palate, this is definitely more on the savoury side for shiraz and way less jammy than most.  In fact, there’s a distinct roasting pan, gravy-like richness to this wine that oozes personality and depth. It also has good, solid acidity to keep it buoyant in the mouth and a layer of dried herb and pepper adds real complexity.
