Mission Briefing

Codename:

Ridgy-didge!

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, ow, ow, ow!

Today’s Marschall Groom Cellars 2011 Barossa Valley Shiraz is a ripper of a wine that we couldn’t wait to get home and enjoy with a large meal prepared on the grill.

A beautiful dark reddish-purple in the glass, today’s wine is highlighted by the bold flavor combo of juicy red fruit and dark chocolate. In fact, you wouldn’t be remiss if the picture of a chocolate-dipped strawberry popped into your head after the first sip.

Please enjoy today’s bold Aussie treat with our heartiest recommendation.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark red, with a lovely brightness to it as you give the glass a swirl. Glimmers of purple are present, as well.

Smell:

A delightful blend of fruit and complementary notes, with espresso bean, dark chocolate, toasty baking spices, and dried cranberry framing a fruity core of dark cherry and black raspberry.

Taste:

Very similar to the nose. Chocolate covered red fruit is the highlight of the palate, with subtle summer earth, spice, and oak nuances present as well.

Finish:

A very smooth and supple finish on today’s wine. A delicious wine to enjoy after a long day at the office.

Pairing:

Honey, garlic, and black peppercorn-spiced chicken breast, finished on the grill with a side of roasted root vegetables.
