woodstock the stocks shiraz 2004 - tasting notes

our tasting notes are based on WSET systematic approach to tasting:


clear bright with a deep intensity purple at the core all the way to the rim, multiple unctuous & luscious legs at bowl.


clean, youthful, medium intensity of black pepper, red current, black berries, blue berries fruits - jammy & spicy.  layers of roses, dark chocolate, leather, tobbacco.


dry, medium (-) acidity, medium (-) tannin, high alcohol level (almost hot), medium body, medium (+) intensity as nose with a nice soft and silky mouthfeel and a medium lenght.


a good wine, plenty of promise from the complexity of its nose and pleasant to drink with enough complexity to make it look forward to another sip.  however, a big wine, almost hot in alcohol.  to drink now.
