View Parent message
From South Australia, which is so meaningless I am not even sure why I am telling you this information.
Dark purple-red in the glass.
Nose smells a bit hot, spice, anise.
Spicy, black cherries, a hint of veggies, turning slightly hot, rough and tart on the finish. Lacking in some polish and smoothness.
Okay, but wouldn't buy again, especially at $16.95 Canadian!!
I had always though that Wolf Blass wines had a reputation for being fairly dependable at the lower end of pricing. Did I just get a bad bottle, or has their quality slipped in recent years. I know I didn't pay a fortune, but for a little less than $20 I expect more.
