The 2013 Dodgy Brothers Shiraz definitely tells you it is Shiraz on the nose. Good intensity, sweet ripe dark fruit, rare meat, and some raspberry liquorice component. Suggestions of lavender, and red currant jelly keeps it interesting.
On the palate the Dodgy Brother Shiraz is soft and supple, ripe plums and crack black pepper – all the usual suspects in McLaren Vale Shiraz. While the colour looks dense and solid purple, and being full bodied, the tannins are still supple and opulent. I could see it complementing a wide range of foods (especially BBQ) or also just drinking it by itself.
As it says on the label; “cellar for up to 10 years – or drink tomorrow.”
