Blackjack Block 6 Shiraz 2004

According to Blackjack’s website: “Blackjack Vineyards is situated on an easterly slope, in the old Apple and Pear growing district of the Harcourt Valley on the foothills of Mt.Alexander. Although just south of Bendigo, the climate is considerably cooler … The Block 6 was planted in 1998“.  What then of the wine?  The aroma was of pepper and plums.  On the palate, there were plums and a bit of length – so not bad.  My doubt was that there was a core of alcohol (it could have been acidity too) that made the wine a little rough.  84 points. (6.9/10)

Abv: 14%
Price: $35
Would I buy it having tasted it?  At $15, probably.
