Chapel Hill The Chosen Road Block Shiraz 2008
There are plenty of dark fruit covered in melted licorice flowing from this wine in a seductive and inviting manner. For a 4 year old wine this seems to be rather open and accessible but I think that could be a product of the vintage. There is a lashing of broiled leather bubbling out of the glass which suggests to me that this is ready to go. The cuddliness and inherent slurp-ability of the wine puts me in the mood for lamb chops so I better head down the butcher to get some.
