Craneford "John Zilm" Petit Verdot, Barossa Valley 2002

Deep, saturated red.

Vinturi - menthol, oak spice, blackberry, earth nose with a medicinal nuance.

Plush and mouth-filling, initially. Then an edge of acidity (decent bit of VA?) whittles the wine down to a middle-weight feel. Not particularly detailed, but definitely has guts and enough flesh to cover its bones.

$25 on release.
