What’s in the glass tonight May 25th – Shiraz

Sula Narshik Shiraz 2016

Off Topic: Sula Vineyards Shiraz Nashik India 2016 – $

I love tea from Assam and Darjeeling, and exclusively drink it, but Indian wine is a first for me.

Deep dark ruby. 13% alc.

Soft dark fruit aromas and minerals, white pepper, heavy spice, cinnamon, prunes and licorice.

Surprisingly lean and minerally in the mouth, with spicy plum and stewed fruit notes and a raspy tannic finish, but rough and lacking in grace and smoothness for a shiraz.

When opened the night before this wine showed more fruit and softness then, but clearly has hardened up and faded overnight.

Fair 80 points.
