"My favorite of the Rubus selections from Kysela is the 2013 Shiraz, a blend of 98% Shiraz and 2% Viognier coming from Australia's Barossa Valley. This is a big, beefy wine with an opaque purple color and a chewy, fleshy mouthfeel with notes of blackberry, cassis, licorice and tar. The wine is full, rich and an outstanding value. Drink it over the next 3-4 years."
