Plantagenet Shiraz 2007

From the coolish Great Southern region in Western Australia, Plantagenet has crafted this pleasant if unspectacular shiraz.  A bright ruby in colour.  A medium intensity aroma of spice, herbs, plums, graphite and anise.  And pepper.  A palate with medium-high acidity, medium length and a plummy flavour.  Its positive is that it is a perfectly pleasant shiraz.  Its negatives are that it is around $45 for a wine that has a resemblence to a typical commercial South Australian shiraz.  83 points
