Mitolo Jester Shiraz 2018 (91 VM)

“Opaque ruby. Spice-accented dark berries, licorice and a smoky nuance on the expressive nose. Fleshy and broad in the mouth, showing supple texture and plush blackberry and cherry cola flavors that tighten up on the back half. The smoky note recurs on the long, seamless finish, which features gentle tannins and lingering spiciness.” -J.R 9/22
