Mount Pleasant ‘Old Paddock & Old Hill’ Shiraz 2002

Hunter Valley, NSW, Australia. 14.5%

84 points

Has some nice savoury leather notes on the nose, while the palate is warm, with only medium concentration and more noticeable sweetness than expected. The alcohol is over the top. Showing some development, slight oxidation, this soft wine is possibly deceptive and may age for a while yet. But drinking fine now.
