Reserve  |  2005 HJ Reserve Shiraz

Lonely Grape, Aug 2009

The best barrels of the yearly shiraz offerings goes into this reserve wine.  This wine does not disappoint.  A spiced lift on the nose through to the silky smooth palate.  Here is all the black fruits, plums, pepper mixed with the elegant tannins from fine french oak.  This wine has all the finesse one should see in a reserve wine and leaving this for about 10 years would see a gem.
