Master Vintner® Shiraz makes 6 gallons of earthy, rich, velvety red wine with flavors of black fruits hints of bittersweet chocolate, plums, black cherries and blackberries that linger on to a long finish.
Ripe, full and concentrated, this wine bursts with aromas of blackberry, notes of black cherry and blueberry and an assured spiciness.
Serve with rich, flavorful dishes like osso buco, roast lamb, traditional Hungarian goulash. For a purely American treat, Carolina pulled pork or Texas brisket. For culinary adventurers, red wine braised octopus. Shiraz isn't just a meat-eating wine though: try it with Puy lentils braised with mushrooms and root vegetables for a savory, satisfying meal.
Serve slightly cool (65F) to keep the tannins firm and the fruit lush — and even if you're not doing a food pairing, try it with a piece of bittersweet chocolate. You'll be amazed at how well they go together!

Waiting for it to clear, and it is not clearing..will update.
I am very pleased with this wine - my first red! Good color and just a hint of oak flavor goes well with the cherry and current undertones. Just bottles last night so I'm looking forward to tasting the aged product in a few months.
Evidently the Shiraz got lost in transit, so I texted & we were sent the wine the next day.
So easy to make a caveman could do it! Wonderful dark cherry and dark berry notes. There were oak chips that were to steep for the last 2 weeks, but I'm not a fan of the oaky dryness so i only went 6days. It was perfect for me. All my lady friends think I'm a wine making god and couldn't get enough of this wine!! Best advice is be absolutely diligent on fermenting temp. And keep it steady! My wine temp maintained 73-74 the whole month of fermentation. That is key to no off flavors.
Just finished the latest batch, but I made one batch for my daughters wedding. We had 30 bottles of Shiraz, 30 of Chardonnay, a couple of kegs, and lots of food for about 100-125 people. when we finally got done, and packing up, there were only about 8 bottles left of the shiraz, and while I was boxing it up, 2 different people stopped by and said they liked it, but could they have a bottle to go. It’s flavorful, fruity, and goes down easy. works well with any type of food (almost) and a great bargain.
